Our project is a mural installation which is based on 2012 – Year of the Dragon, Myth (or imaginative story), Shape & Colour
A dragon is a mythological beast usually with lizard-like traits, that feature in the myths of many cultures. There are two different cultural traditions of dragons: the European dragons, which come from folk traditions and are related to Greek and Middle Eastern mythologies, and the Chinese dragon, which is similar to dragons from Japan, Korea and other East Asian countries.
Dragons are found everywhere in everyday life: in poetry, legends and folklore, or in the Chinese Zodiac... Chinese think it is considered a great honour to be born in the Year of the Dragon.
Distinctive features of Chinese Dragons the body of a serpent the claws of an eagle the legs of a tiger the whiskers of a catfish the antlers of a deer the scales of a fish
Often we find dragons together with the Chinese Phoenix. The Phoenix is also a creature from Chinese mythology and symbolizes good luck, peace, kindness and glory.
Designers often stylise real creatures to make them look fantastical ’
