In China the dragon is a creature of great creative power, a positive icon, representing the strong male yang principle of heaven, chance, energy, wealth and creativity.
Dragons are shape shifters, able to transform as they will, from as small creature as a silkworm to a giant who fills all the sky. Pearls, or jewels clutched in its claws represent wisdom and health.
The dragon can control the weather by squeezing the jewels to produce dew, rain or even downpours when clutching tightly.
