It is believed that the early found bones of dinosaurs were what caused man to create in his mind the first images of dragons.
Envisioning the strength and power of such an incredibly sized beast early man created tales of power and magic to attribute to the giant creatures which he could then only imagine. It is easy to understand how terrifying that vision would have been?
It is these early tales which have influenced our modern view of Dragons. Their magic and mystic have persisted throughout the years and today they are popular in all cultures for the symbolic messages seen in their image.
The mythical dragon may have roamed the world long ago but in the modern day this creature's image has re-emerged.
