Few  examples of the Dragons group...
For centuries, in the folk mythology of Central Asia, dragons have been symbols of power and strength.
In Tibet  the word "druk" means dragon and thunder as well. Dragons in rug weaving are  shown chasing or holding the "flaming pearl",symbol of happiness, amidst swirling clouds. In rugs, when paired with phoenixes, symbol of earth,  they bring blessing  and domestic harmony.
