Descendants of the dragonThe Chinese believe that the dragon is a totem of the Chinese nation, a symbol of China that is closely associated with Chinese history and civilization. In terms of communication, this grand canal also enabled China to accomplish the tasks of the military and meet the economic demand. It took over six years to build the grand canal that proved to be a clear demonstration of China’s ancient philosophic concept of Great Unity. The dragon for the Chinese was more often seen in a positive light and particularly associated with life-giving rains and water resources. The dragon was everywhere in ancient China and is larger than life today and, more than ever, in the Chinese soul.
