DRACO

DRAGONS
There was a huge dragon with seven heads and ten horns and a crown on each of his heads.
With his tail he dragged a third of the stars out of the sky and threw them down to the earth.

-Revelations 12:3-4


European Dragons: Of the animal kingdom, the Western dragon is the opposition to light and the chaotic counterpart to order. Though the dragon has plagued mankind since early times as a physical manifestation of evil, it has instilled nothing short of awe in humanity.

List of European Dragons: A list of the European dragon types, including the western, wyvern and basilisk.

Eastern Dragons: Eastern dragons have a rich ancestry that extends years into the past; as Oriental Kings they grace the heavens with their rain-inducing spirals. Of the Eastern world, the dragon is one of four holy animals and precedes all others in the mythical hierarchy.

List of Eastern Dragons: A list of the Eastern dragon types, including the Chinese, Japanese, Indian and Korean dragons.

African and Middle Eastern Dragons: The dragon of the African and Middle Eastern world is a chimerical figure, composed of natural animals yet binding together ancient qualities that allude to mythical origins. The African serpent is a highly cosmological figure, while Middle Eastern dragons were brutal lords of chaos whose wings eclipsed the sun.

List of African and Middle Eastern Dragons: A list of the dragons populating Africa and the Middle East, with information on the rain-serpents, ouroboros and the winged serpents of Egypt.

Dragons of Oceania: The dragons of Oceania are the ancestral forefathers of contemporary folklore. Oceanic dragons have respectfully remained unchanged throughout their years; it is by looking at these creatures we stare into the heart of the dragon.

List of Oceanic Dragons: A list of the dragon types from Australia to New Zealand and Polynesia, including the taniwha, bunyip and rainbow serpents.

Dragons of the Americas: The magnificence of the American dragon is truly outstanding; from the divine to the dark, these are creatures that blur the line between dragon and serpent.

Stories, in both ancient and contemporary nations, play a vital role in both the shaping of the culture and the people therein. Dragons synonymously take an important part in such mythologies and folklore; their superior physical prowess, untamed spiritual abilities and complex system of associated symbols and metaphors makes the dragon a creature that spans the mythological boundaries to encompass the good, the bad, and the downright evil.

Whether dragons feature as the star or simply as an unimportant side character, their presence automatically sets the tale moving in a far more dramatic way. Heavily steeped in mythological mysticism, their elusive nature has done nothing but ensure the dragon will forever lay tantalisingly just beyond our physical reach.

Dragon Mythology: One of the most prolific images in the mythological world is the dragon; as a symbol, wild animal, creator, destroyer and divine being, dragons have crossed the exclusive mythological boundaries. As an inspiration to people and societies across the world, it is the dragon who has captured the nature of mythology in all its forms.

this is my pride and joyof all my tats, he is my protector, my wisdom, my hope,

Great new pictures Cru. And this was a really interesting post. One of my students just gave me a hand made glass "magic wand" with a dragon on it. So, this was real interesting to me. I have to say that tattoo's fascinate me, although I don't want one of my own. I do threaten my grown daughters sometimes that I'm going to get one though.....and they worry about it a little! Got to keep those kids on their toes you know. lol

In some eastern cultures, they feel Drgaons are protectors. And I have needed my own protectors all my life thank you for the visit

Beautiful tattoo Cru...

Thanks for your research and the information in your post. It's fascinating.

I've often felt that dragons are really collective race memories of dinosaurs. In spite of what "experts" tell us. I believe man is much older than what science believes and that humanity and dinosaurs co-existed for a time..together on the earth. Notice how every culture seems to have the stories of "dragons".

Yes I do see that. and the scientists do say that the idea of Dragons came from dinosaur BONES, well I say how is that possible? I mean, how did they know thousands of years ago about BONES? I feell that they did co-exsist for at least SOME time, and there have not been BONES found in a lot of cultures that have belifs of Dragons.
