Comments

In Chinese culture, the dragon is revered as a divine mythical creature, a symbol of power, strength, wealth and good fortune.

The number eight is considered extremely lucky as the Chinese word for ‘eight’ means good fortune or money. The number 8 is also uniquely symmetric, and when laid on its side, resembles the mathematical symbol for infinity.
