The beauty of a Powerful Red Dragon

Of the 12 signs of the Chinese Zodiac, the dragon is the most powerful animal associated with a given year in the cycle of 12 years.

Children born in the year of the dragon are deemed to be destined for a life of power and success.

Dragon = Power & success

The color red = auspicious good omen.

A work of art that combines thee two, is highly favored.

Following are images of a Tibetan piece that predate 1800 – an era in which Tibet had friendly relations with its neighbors.
