Dragons are mythological animals of Chinese origin who protect Buddhism. In contrast to Western mythology, Asian dragons are rarely depicted as malevolent. Although fearsome and powerful, dragons are equally considered just, benevolent, and the bringers of wealth and good fortune.

Will be carefully packaged and sent by registered mail.
