Kindest Regards, all! Don't know how far this will go, but I was doing a little bit of looking around a few days ago. Isn't it kinda interesting how dragon myths circle the globe? It's almost weird...in the West the dragon is a villian to be slain, when looking at the St. George and the Garden of Eden / Revelation symbology. And in the East, a dragon of a different stripe is considered a protector and bringer of good fortune, some cultures even being known as "people of the dragon." It doesn't end there, if we carry the serpent / dragon symbology to the sea, there are sea serpents and leviathan of legend or superstition. Even in the New World hemisphere, the feathered serpent, Quetzalcoatl (sp?) figured prominantly in the regional mythos. In Africa, mokele mbembe (sp) is said by some to exist in the deepest jungle. In North America, "lake monsters" reminescent of "Nessie" are sacrificed to for the assurance of a safe crossing. Some dragons fly, some breathe fire, some swim. And all of them make strong impressions on the collective psyche of humanity, some for good, and some for evil. Any thoughts?
