TO THE CHINESE THE dragon is not an evil creature, but is a god and the friend of men who worship
him. He “holds in his power prosperity and peace.” Ruling the waters and the winds, he sends the
good rain, and is hence the symbol of fecundity. In the Hsia dynasty two dragons fought a great duel
until both disappeared, leaving only a fertile foam from which were born the descendants of the Hsia.
Thus the dragons came to be looked upon as the ancestors of a race of heroes.
