Throughout diverse cultures and histories, dragons are woven into a rich tapestry of symbolism. In Chinese lore, they symbolize power, good fortune, and rulership over the elements—Fire, Water, Earth, and Wind. As the fifth of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals, the Dragon is associated with the Earthly branch symbol 辰, pronounced chen. Often depicted chasing a flaming Pearl, it symbolizes energy, wisdom, prosperity, power, and immortality. In Greek myths, dragons intertwine with heroic quests, such as Heracles' encounter with the Ladon. Dragons serve as multifaceted symbols, representing storms or regality, villains or protectors. In East Asian culture, the Dragon, as a totem, is a powerful guardian and guide, symbolizing good luck for those deemed worthy. LAdV embraces this universal allure, blending tradition with modernity to craft expressive, stylish, and playful dragon-themed designs.
