DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

The Chinese dragon has some specific features like the long whiskers and the stab-like horns that make it unique, and according to traditions, in addition to being the emperor´s symbol (actually the dragon representing the emperor has 5 claws), it is a powerful auspicious symbol and controls the element of water.

the dragon is the most powerful of the zodiac animals and it´s a symbol of success and magical powers.

Cherry blossoms represent instead living every moment of life to its fullest, the "carpe diem" way.

This design was requested by Carmen, and is fit for colour too.

A curiosity: the sphere often seen in the dragon´s claw is originally a pearl, and it symbolizes wealth and prosperity.
