The Dragon as an Icon of East Asia
In Asia, the dragon is a mythical beast that is celebrated for its benevolence, intelligence, and good will, and has been considered a common symbol of identity for the East Asian cultures. During the primitive days, the dragon was regarded as an auspicious creature with the power to influence the lives of the Chinese people. As tribes fought for domination and came to be united under a common banner, the dragon was adopted as a national icon.1
The Evolution of the Design of the Dragon
The image of the dragon, essentially, has undergone a series of changes over the centuries, i.e., it has become more and more beautiful and mighty. The original illustration on primitive bronze-ware portrayed the dragon as ferocious and mysterious. In the Han Dynasty (206BC-220), it became magnificent and unrestrained, during the Tang Dynasty (618-907), it was personalized as a gentle, tamed, and graceful creature; and, from the Song Dynasty onwards (960-1279), the design of the dragon became delicate and flowery.1References:
