Born around the fire and evolved through word of mouth, tales of these creatures and their supernatural powers were told and retold millions of times – from person to person, from trade port to trade port, and from generation to generation – manifesting into a hundred different versions around the world. The Aztec Dragon design celebrates Quetzalcóatl, one of the most revered gods in ancient Mesoamerica. A powerful combination of bird and rattlesnake, this feathered serpent was believed to have organized the original cosmos, participated in the creation of mankind, and was related to gods of the wind, the rain, and the dawn. Aztec high priests would even include the name Quetzalcoatl in their titles to denote their high rank. The Welsh Dragon is one of the most powerful creatures in Welsh folklore. Y Ddraig Goch, or the red dragon, appeared on ancient British soldiers war flags as early as 300 AD. At Queen Elizabeths coronation, it stood guard as one of the Queens Beasts to signify Her Majestys direct descent from the Welsh House of Tudor. And it remains a symbol of the Welsh peoples fierce spirit on the national flag to this day. The Chinese Dragon is one of the oldest and most powerful symbols in Chinese history. With the body of a serpent, the scales of a fish, the head of a crocodile, and the wings of an eagle, the dragon has been a protective and benevolent symbol of strength, good luck, and nobility in Chinese culture for over 5,000 years. Part dragon and part serpent, the Norse Dragon (also called Nidhogg) was a terrifying beast. Bright scales covered his body, knifelike claws adorned his feet, bat-like wings unfurled from his sides, and piercing horns erupted from his head. Bent on civilizations destruction, Nidhogg lived in the darkest whirlpool of the underworld, gnawing at the sacred tree of life that held the nine Nordic worlds of the cosmos together. The fifth release in this exciting 6-design series celebrates the Indian Dragon , which is part dragon and part serpent. This round features India’s Taj Mahal with an Indian dragon.
