What does a dragon symbolize?

Dragons are the most common mythical creatures and represent some form of magic or supernatural power.

Dragons have long symbolized power, creativity, heaven, and good fortune. Thai culture also believes that dragons have authority over bodies of water, rain, floods, and storms.

Dragons in Thailand have nine parts, each associated with different animals on earth. The head is that of a chameleon, the scales of carp fish, the horns of a giant stag, the eyes of a hare, the ears of the water buffalo, the neck of a snake, the belly of a clam, the paws of a tiger and claws of an eagle. Culturally, dragons are associated with wisdom, power, creativity and good fortune.

In Thailand, statues of dragons decorate roofs and gates of temples and images of dragons adorn the walls, both as guardians and to symbolize the dragon’s power of clarity. Buddhist dragons often are depicted holding a mani jewel, which represents the Buddha’s teaching.

Our Tapestry

Sirius Health owns a beautiful Kalaga Tapestry from the Mae Sai district of Chaing Mai province. This tapestry has a hand-embellished golden dragon set in a green silk border.

We want our new dragon tapestry to fire the spiritual imagination of our customers, so we have hung this new tapestry in the Bodhi Room, our second massage room.
