    Hi everyone,

    I have a question for those of you that have this solid- what is the gold part in the square supposed to be? I don't own this solid myself but I did get one to send to another member abroad so I did get to see it close up and am baffled by what this may be. /laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> user posted image

    Lisa,
    I thought it looked like a demon or alien from Jacqueline's novel. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />
    There is a website I found on Dragon's : http://www.sommerland.com if that will help.
    Look as though Jay Strongwater threw alittle something extra in this time. <img src='style_emoticons//huh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’huh.gif’ />

    Although I do not own the Dragon, I'd say it is just a part of the billowing clouds… <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ />

    The Chinese dragon is usually protrayed with clouds

    ” The Chinese dragon has a body of a snake; the scales and tail of a fish; the antlers of a deer; the face of a qilin (a deer-like mythical creature with fire all over its body); and two pairs of talons of eagles; and the eyes of a demon. They fly in the sky among the clouds. Almost all pictures of Chinese dragons show Clouds.”

    My guess would be it is a cloud.

    They really should have put him holding a pearl or ball.

    Ok, people. Time to call a spade a spade…it's dragon poopie. But it's Ok because its gold-plated dragon poopie. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    BTW..I don't like this dragon. It really pales when compared to the first one. But I guess this version was meant to recreate the Chinese dragon, whereas the original dragon looks like a mythical creature from legends or like the one in the song Puff the Magic Dragon.

    I like my dragons mythical so that's why I love the first dragon.

    Yes, all very funny- I like the dragon poopie! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    So do y'all think the dragon is standing on a cloud? If it is really part of a cloud attached to the dragon's hiney shouldn't it also be enameled green?

    I'll never look at this solid again without a smirk on my face. <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />

    I did get a shot of the back of the solid but you can't really see the “cloud” from this angle. As you can see it sure isn't a foot!

    Hi Everyone,

    Ok…did some research on Chinese dragons and perhaps the tail is holding a flaming pearl. Here's some good info.

    Some scholars report that the Huang Di (Yellow Emperor) used a snake for his coat of arms. Every time he conquered another tribe, he incorporated his defeated enemy's emblem into his own. Huang Di was immortalized into a dragon that looks like his emblem. That explains why the Chinese dragon has a body of a snake; the scales and tail of a fish; the antlers of a deer; the face of a qilin (a deer-like mythical creature with fire all over its body); and two pairs of talons of eagles; and the eyes of a demon. They fly in the sky among the clouds. Almost all pictures of Chinese dragons show them playing with a flaming pearl. Supposedly it is the pearl that gives them their power and allows them to ascend to heaven. Chinese dragons are occasionally depicted with bat-like wings grown out of the front limbs, but most do not have wings.
    Also, since the Chinese consider Huang Di as their ancestor, they sometimes refer to themselves as “the descendants of the dragons”.
