In ancient Chinese societies, the people themselves believed they had descended from the dragons because the dragon was imagined as a reptile whose form was representative of the evolution from the ancestors and the qi energy. Since roughly 4700 BC, the dragon has been an omnipresent creature in religion, culture, and mythology of the Chinese people.
