The dragon, printed in environmentally-friendly water-based block-printing black ink on white, handmade, Japanese kozo (or mulberry) paper is printed in an edition of 30 prints. The sheets are 11" (27.9 cm) wide by 14" (35.6 cm) tall.

The dragon is a near-universal figure in world mythologies and has quite complex symbolism. In China, the dragon is more benign than in most Western legends, and the powerful creature is the fifth in the 12-year zodiac cycle. Dragons with five claws are reserved for the Emperor- this is a three-clawed dragon, speaking the character "long" for dragon.

Those born after Chinese New Year (or early in subsequent years) in the years 1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, and 2024 are (or will be) born in the Year of the Dragon. This print would make a lovely gift for lovers of dragons or those born in the Year of the Dragon.
