Terracotta Warriors: The Guardian of the Dragon
The Guardian of the Dragon is a General with the strength, courage and loyalty to his Dragon. His task is protection; until his dying breath he will defend against all enemies.
In Chinese art, dragons are characteristically depicted as long, scaled, serpentine creatures with four legs. In yin and yang, a dragon is yang which harmonizes with a yin fenghuang, the “Chinese phoenix.” In Chinese mythology, the four major Dragon Kings symbolize each of the four seas: the East Sea (corresponding to the East China Sea), the South Sea (corresponding to the South China Sea), the West Sea (sometimes seen as the Indian Ocean and beyond), and the North Sea (sometimes seen as Lake Baikal).
