Product Information

 

According to ancient Chinese mythology, the dragon is symbolic of good fortune. In Chinese culture the dragon is said to have nine sons, each of whom was endowed with a unique supernatural power. Each of the son's characteristics resembled a different aspect of ancient Chinese culture, representing music or physical abilities, guarding or providing wisdom to those who kept them among their personal affects. These appear in many aspects of architecture as well as forming part of daily life such as embellishments on statues, houses, courts and incense burners in ancient China.
