Dragon (latin draco, greek drákon, "Snake") is a synonym for lizard-like, mostly winged hybrids described in
mythologies and fairy tales. They combine properties of snakes, crocodiles, lions as well as horn-bearing and fire-breathing ones
in different variations. In general, dragons stand for liberation and unleashing and are endowed with strong spiritual
meanings in various cultures and religions worldwide. Often they are thought to be gifted with magical abilities or supernatural
powers and are often associated with wells, rain and rivers, happiness and prosperity, superhuman wisdom and long life.
In some cultures they are attributed the cognitive abilities of human language. In Asia, the mythical creature is considered a lucky charm.
Dragons can also be a symbol for the primordial powers conquered by man, but also primeval fears and dangers not conquered, that exist underground as well as chaos. In Christian dominated and influenced cultures dragons did and do symbolize the overcome forces of the personified evil and subjugated missionized, unchristian nations, but also the evil sinful forces of man.
In Celtic tradition, dragons were assigned to the four elements (fire, water, earth, air). One differentiated between water dragons, earth dragons, air dragons and fire dragons and therefore connected the dragons with creative and magical primal forces.
