For thousands of years, the dragon has been a critical symbol in Chinese culture. Long regarded as a mythical beast with the power to control water and the rains, the dragon also became associated with good luck, wealth, and power. It was seen as such a powerful symbol that emperors would adopt the dragon in their personal seal to associate themselves with power.
Today, modern Chinese people take pride in an association with the dragon as a symbol of their wealth and good fortune. The tiger also has a rich history in Chinese culture as a symbol of good luck and is often used in depictions of feng shui because of its perceived perfection in bringing natural balance.
