The Chinese dragon is a spiritual beast; a mythical creature with a long, snakelike body and sharp talons. Its image differs slightly to that of the Western dragon, being considered a sacred creature: a god that reigns over direction. In China, it is also used to symbolize the power of the emperor. The Chinese dragon is believed to control the weather, being responsible for causing tempests, lightning, and tornadoes. In its hand it holds a flaming pearl, thought to be harbinger of fortune and good luck.
