About this deal

This creature, known in Akkadian as the mušḫuššu, meaning "furious serpent", was used as a symbol for particular deities and also as a general protective emblem. One medieval French legend holds that, in ancient times, a fearsome dragon known as La Gargouille had been causing floods and sinking ships on the river Seine, [164] so the people of the town of Rouen would offer the dragon a human sacrifice once each year to appease its hunger.

The image of the Chinese dragon was roughly established in the Shang and Zhou dynasties, but there was no great change for a long time. Normally drawn out relationship drama isn’t my thing, but I really love the action adventure element here.For the evolution of Yinglong and Huanglong (Yellow Dragon), scholar Chen Zheng proposed in "Yinglong – the origin of the image of the real dragon" that from the middle of the Zhou dynasty, Yinglong's wings gradually became the form of flame pattern and cloud pattern at the dragon's shoulder in artistic creation, which derived the wingless long snake shape.

They are often identified with Satan, due to the references to Satan as a "dragon" in the Book of Revelation. A famous image of the dragon gnawing on its tail from the eleventh-century Codex Marcianus was copied in numerous works on alchemy. Hesiod also mentions that the hero Heracles slew the Lernaean Hydra, a multiple-headed serpent which dwelt in the swamps of Lerna.The Azhdarchid group of pterosaurs are named from a Persian word for "dragon" that ultimately comes from Aži Dahāka. The earliest surviving depiction of a "true" ouroboros comes from the gilded shrines in the tomb of Tutankhamun.
