The excitement of CHINESE NEW YEARS cumulates with a parade and the excitement is the coming of the STREET DRAGON! The weight of it and the puppetry is awesome! This is celebrated world wide in each "China Town" of every major city!Chinese dragons are powerful and benevolent symbols in Chinese culture, with supposed control over watery phenomenon, e.g. summoning rain during a drought. Dragons are everywhere in China — in legends, festivals, astrology, art, names, and idioms. Chinese dragons are seen as lucky and good — quite different to the evil, dangerous, fire-breathing dragons of most Western stories. So one can see this excitement of a creature who brings LUCK and FORTUNE in the eyes of all men, women, teens and children! Chinese people love the word "dragon". The Chinese word (character) for a dragon is 龙 (lóng /long/). It's popular in names, e.g. famous movie stars Jackie Chan (成龙 Chénglong /chnng long/ 'become dragon') and Bruce Lee (李小龙 Lǐ Xiǎolong /lee sshyaoww-long/ 'Li [surname] little-dragon'). Chinese dragons don't have wings but they can "fly" into the sky. Chinese dragons don't breathe fire but can summon rain. Chinese dragons live at the bottom of seas, rivers, lakes, or anywhere with water. I not only hope you all enjoy my offering but I have done the Chinese fans PROUD! I had a ball doing this one. I fine tuned it over and over! More Photos to come once I size them or I may do another offering: CHINESE STREET DRAGONS: Take 2!
