What does a Chinese vase with a dragon mean?
In early Chinese art the dragon was understood as a symbol of the cardinal direction east, and it has long been associated with water, particularly lakes and rivers.
In the Chinese culture, the dragon represents good luck, strength, health and also the male element Yang.
The dragon is unique because it is the only mythical creature of all the animals in the Chinese zodiac and babies are born in the year of the dragon more than any other animal. The dragon also signifies imperial rule, and works decorated with five-clawed dragons are known to have been produced for use at court.
