30" X 24" Ink and Gouache on Cicada Wing Paper Text at the bottom reads: The dragon is an auspicious and significant creature who plays an important role in the mythology and art of China and Japan. The concept of such a large reptile connected with water, rain, heaven, and fertility may be derived from Mesopotamia, where it occurs many centuries before it is found in China, and may ultimately reflect even older memories of a giant winged lizard which we know existed in very early times and which might have survived in the collective subconscious of prehistoric man. It is called Lung in Chines and Ryu I’m Japanese • They symbolize wisdom, strength, longevity, protection, regeneration, and sexuality. • The symbol in the center is an Om - this style is found in Nepal, and is considered to be the sound of the universe, a cosmic sound... a mystical syllable, to meditate you can stare into the symbol +, while letting your eyes soften and chant* Om (aum)... this can lead to a transcendent state of consciousness. • I personally have a collection of dragon tattoos and view them as protectors and guides. • • Double Dragon was a 1987 video game developed by Technos in Japan. *Chanting can be done out loud or silently. +Or shut your eyes and recite as a mantra.
