Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0887767915, Paperback)Through the ages, the dragon has been an important symbol for the Chinese. A time of Golden Dragons is the most auspicious possible. In fascinating text and beautiful paintings, Song Nan and Hao Yu Zhang trace the dragon’s history. Perhaps inspired by giant crocodiles, the image of the dragon affects every aspect of life in China, including the marking of dragon years, the flying of dragon kites, and the eating of dragon cakes at dragon boat races.
A splendid introduction to the richness of Chinese culture, this is a book to cherish this special year and for years to come.
From the Hardcover edition.
