The old style way mark of the character for ‘dragon’, now type ‘or’ long and is pronounced in mandarin.
The origin of the Chinese dragon is uncertain, but many researchers agree that it comes from totems of different tribes in China. Some have suggested that being a stylized representation of animals such as snakes, fish and crocodiles. For example, the Banpo site of the Yangshao culture in Shaanxi had a reason elongated like a snake. Archaeologists believe that the largo fish would have evolved into images of the Chinese dragon. The relationship with fish is reflected in the legend of a carp that saw the top of a mountain and decided he was going to achieve it. Swimming upstream, climbing rapids and waterfalls without leaving anything that you deviated from its path. When you reach the top there was the legendary “Dragon Gate” and when you jump over it turned into a dragon. It is believed that several waterfalls and cataracts in China is the location of the “Dragon Gate”. This legend is used as an allegory of the drive and effort needed to overcome obstacles and achieve success.
An alternative view, advocated by He Xin, is that the first dragons represented a kind of crocodile. Specifically, the Crocodylus porosus, a former giant crocodile, known for its ability to accurately sense changes in air pressure, thus anticipating the arrival of rain. This may have been the origin of the dragon’s mythical attributes to control the time, especially the rain. In addition, there is evidence andalusia crocodile cults in ancient Babylonian, Indian and Mayan. The relationship with the crocodile is also supported by the opinion in ancient times that large crocodiles are a variety of dragon. For example, in the History of Zhou Chu, about the life of a warrior of the Jin Dynasty, it was said that they had killed a “dragon” that infested the waters of his native village, which seems to be a crocodile.
Others have proposed that their way is the fusion of the totems of various tribes as a result of the fusion of them. The shape of the coiled snake or dragon played an important role in ancient Chinese culture. Legendary characters as Navarre wa (”) or Fuxi (”) are represented by bodies of snakes. Some researchers report that the legendary first emperor of China, Huang Di (”, ‘Yellow Emperor’) used a snake in its coat of arms. Cada vez que conquistaba una nueva tribu incorporaba el emblema del enemigo derrotado en el suyo. This explains that the dragon seems to have different characteristics from other animals.
