Size: ~61×61 cm (~24×24 inches)
Moulded on another layer of paper, not framed
Original sumi-e painting of an Oriental dragon grabbing a pearl.
I used high quality rice paper and mostly black Japanese ink to paint this dragon, with just a little touch of golden ink for highlights.
Japanese and Chinese dragons are legendary creatures in Oriental mythology, folklore, and culture. Oriental dragons have many animal-like forms but are most commonly depicted as snake-like with clawed legs. They traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, typhoons, and floods. The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it in East Asian culture. Many pictures of Chinese dragons show a pearl under their chin or in their claws. The pearl is associated with spiritual energy, wisdom, prosperity, power, immortality, thunder, or the moon.
