Dragons, called “Long” in Chinese. They are legendary creatures since they appeared. In the human mind, dragons are formidable and august.
Dragons were deified animals created by tales of a legend in China since ancient times. They were the symbolizations of the auspicious signs. The ancient people thought that the dragon would be a fetish of powerful and related to water controlled and managed the animals and astronomical phenomena. Dragon, as a worship phenomenon, has been permeating all aspects of Chinese society. Nevertheless, the image of a dragon in the west country is totally upside down with the Chinese dragon.
There are many differences in cultures between China and the west. At the same time, Chinese and Western tales both have the existence of a dragon. The dragon of Chinese tales was totemism in ancient times. The original prototype was a synthesis of several kinds of animals. Cows, rabbits, deer, eagle, crap, snake, and so on. These were the favorite and worshiped animals since ancient times. People gathered the characteristics of these animals into the dragon and used dragon for the perseverance and determination of confronting nature. It also reflects the gentle and cultivated characters of our national ancient residents. The visualize of the Chinese dragon is gentle and elegant. Chinese dragon is the god in charge of the rain. Because China is the agriculture civilization in ancient, the belief and adore is the most complex to the dragon. When it became the civilization of society, dragon gradually evolved the deified animal of realistic and romantic. You can find that dragon appears in many areas, such as politics, economics, cultures, and arts. The dragon becomes the spiritual pillar in the hearts of Chinese people.
However, the western dragon is just the opposite of the Chinese dragon. Although western dragons’ bodily form is huge and strength is powerful, they are not deity. They are a kind of demon. Western dragons are more materialized, they have wings in a general way. They do not speed across the sky but using the wings flying in the sky. And they are not like Chinese dragons can control nature, they can erupt the huge flame. The most crucial point is the western dragons are not the positive energy, they are representing the evil and the dark force. Therefore, in most cases western dragons are ugly and deformed, it’s hard to look at them. But after the movie <How to Train Your Dragon> was shown, the image of the western dragon was changed better than before. The western dragon’s image of the movie is adorkable. However, the image of the western dragon in the movie does also not exist in China, because the Chinese dragon cannot be tamed.

The other eleven animals are the real animals, there is no possibility that dragons are not existing. And there are many true cases that can prove the existence of dragons. Maybe dragons were existing in reality, maybe it is just the glorious vision of people. Whatever it takes, it is the belief deep inside Chinese people.
