A picture, understand the “dragon” culture and spiritual connotation

In art creation, we often associate with the ancient gods, such as dragons, phoenixes.


When I read Mr. Jin Yong, I often saw a hero in the illusory and warm scene. “Xiaolong out of the sea – Dragon is in the sky – 龙 有 有 – -” A set of dragons and 18 palms, push the plot to the climax.


This is the plot in the movie, but reflects the sedimentation of the script to the Chinese traditional culture! Because although this is just a moving name, the screenwriter can refer to the statement in the “Zhou Yi”, not only for the movie painting dragon, but also reflects the rich cultural heritage, it is worth learning.

In the painting, we are engraving, sculpture in engraving, there are dragons in literature, film and games, then, how much is deeply understood by Dragon Culture and Connotation?


In the ancient Chinese social belief system, the various kinds of beasts (poultry) represented by Dragon and Feng are not only a large number, the kind is rich, and it is also very constant, there is a source, and there is a rheology. Don’t say, unicorn, 鲲 Peng, 貔恘, white tiger, Suzaku, Xuanwu, these beasts, a single dragon, there is a lot of categories, and division of labor details. There is “虬, 虬 龙, 龙, 螭 (chi) dragon, 应 应, 龙, 神 (h)”, “Guangya · Draft fish”, “there is a scales, there is a wing Dragon, a horned rumor, no angle, dragon. “

If you often apply these beasts, you should figure out the category and connotation. In this way, not only rich cultural heritage and knowledge reserves can also be more heart-based in the creation, and use it.

The dragon’s graphics started in the Han Dynasty. Due to the gradual penetration of the thoughts of the thoughts, it was returned to the important Xiangrui. The practicality of the Zhaoyi evil is amplified. It is widely accepted by the people to make it a folk. The most important beast in beliefs. Telling “Dragon” today.

The Han Dynasty has a fairyland with a fairy, a phoenix beam?

For thousands of years, the Chinese have created numerous beasts, a variety of three, and a wide variety. Although it belongs to the evil imagination of the real image, our ancestors think of these beasts, a world that is more rich, and the world is divided into work. In this world, not only the “god”, “God”, “God”, more and the animal image, although these beasts have given the gods in the image and function, but inheritance Relationship, “Social” attributes and the like are very close to our human world, and the system is perfect, and we are beyond our imagination. In the Dragon’s “Tria”, these attributes have also been fully reflected.

“Huainanzi · Topographic Training” has a deeper connotation representation of these deeper dragons: “Yu Jiali Dragon, Feilong, Phoenix, Phoenix Bird, Bird Birthman, Van Yu is born in migranto. Mao Yusheng Long, Ying Yusheng, Jiansheng Qilin, Kirin Shengbo Beast, Moon, born in the Beast. Heads of Scales, Dragon, 鲲鲠 鲠 建 建Fish, mortal scales are born in the squid. Ten pool is ahead of the dragon, the dragon is born in Xuanzang, Xuanzang’s life-spiriting turtle, the turtle tortoise, all the people are born in the turtle. “

For this description, you can make a diagram, which is more.

A complete and detailed clan passage, and it is a huge ecological system. This is an ecological system in the world! The role in the dragon is almost a thousand generations of “ecological chain”! It seems that I can understand why the dragon can be a symbol of Huaxia Totem, why is we dragons?


As you can see, the Dragon is in the entire “ecological chain”, then how is the dragon itself a classification system?

Wushu Longzhong Qinglong is in the East, Bai Longxu, Chi Longju, in the south, Heilongju, Huanglongju. Huanglong is a combination of the characteristics and functions of various dragons.
