Prints of the Day - Rise of the Dragon
The symbolism behind this piece represents the rise of China as a civilization and as a world power. It is both majestic and frightening in its power. The fact that you can see neither head nor tail of the Dragon is evidence that it can potentially overwhelm the world around it if the beast becomes angry.
This piece has deep meaning for me as the creator as I see a civilization vast in its art and beauty and frightening in its potential to do harm. The activist in me senses that art is one way to control the beast. Whether it will ever take its proper place as the wise ones rather than the tyrants, one can only wait and see.
