    The Dragon: A European Deity?

    The Dragon is yes witnessed at european fairy tales. Connected always with ages of magic. And with wizards, usually opposed to them.

    If you sit for a minute and think about it, how much do you personally consider the Dragon as a 'european deity'? I mean, yes it is used in Europe but in the far east it has much larger acceptance and is valued maybe much more and in different ways, up to this day. Maybe this is where its tradition came to the european lands in the first place?

    Re: Dragon: A European deity?

    If you go to any underground or even mainstream danceclubs in europe, especially the trance ones, what are you going to witness before your eyes?

    Young people, european youths, "dancing" in way that imitates the 'dragon'!

    In hip hop music too, negros move their body in the rythym, as if it was a dragon's body.

    I dont know if you can understand what i m talking about, it has to do with symbolic movements, etc. that are inspired of course by the music.

    However, in the european tales, we are told that the hero slayed the dragon, or the mighty wizard deafeated the evil dragon. Not that they danced like dragons!

    I hope at least people here understand what i mean, i am not a (complete) idiot lol for discussing how people dance as dragons, all i am saying is that in the cultural mix on current european soil, and of course in america as well, all over the western world, the dragon as a symbol, even as a tatoo, or a t-shirt theme, has become largely accepted and even mainstream! Now, this could be argued that is a sign of the Chinese race slowly taking over the planet, and European markets of course!! lol

    Someone else could argue that the dragon is as 'indigenous' in the west as it is in China. Who knows for certain?
