The Chinese dragon spelled Long, Loong, or Lung in transliteration , is a Chinese mythical creature that also appears in other East Asian cultures, and thus is also sometimes called the Oriental or Eastern dragon. Unlike the Western dragon of Europe that is representative of evil , the many eastern versions of the dragon are powerful spiritual symbols, representing seasonal cycles and supernatural forces. The Chinese dragon is easily recognizable for its long serpentine body that is generally wingless, and its anthropomorphic face, complete with beard. In some eastern cultures, the dragon plays an integral part in creation mythology. Generally, the oriental dragon is benevolent and powerful, bringer of good fortune.
