POTD: Dragon at the Wall

Dragon at the Wall
Huanghuacheng, China
2016

The dragon as a symbol has a long history in China. Traditionally it was a symbol representing imperial power. So seeing one sketched in chalk in a guardhouse on the Great Wall of China, seems appropriate. But, being the consumer of modern media culture that I am, it of course mostly reminded me of the Game of Thrones–which of course also ties it to power. Given the graffiti surrounding it, I had to wonder if the dragon was drawn by a resident of China or a visiting westerner.

    1. Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, pick your dragon fantasy. This one did look skinnier than the ones in either of the movie/TV versions from those stories. Perhaps it had been on a diet. 🙂
