Dragon Tee


If you ask an ancient Chinese cosmogonist, they'll define 4 different types of dragons. Featured in this ultra comfy black tee is the Green Dragon of the East. Being one of the creatures of the Four Directions in China, he symbolizes the East and the spring. His element is wood, and the Green Dragon brings promise of regenerating rains. The Green Dragon, also known as "Ti-Lung" embodied the active Yang principle, offering power and insight to a positive force of weather. In Chinese culture, the dragon represents good luck, power, strength, and good health. Notice, as you look closely at this incredibly detailed retro neon print, a flaming pearl in the clutches of the dragon. It is widely believed that pearls represent wisdom gained through experience. Many pictures of Chinese dragons show a flaming pearl under their chin or in their claws, suggesting their unequivocal connections to spiritual energy, wisdom, prosperity, power, immortality, thunder, water, and the moon. Chinese art has often depicted a pair of dragons chasing or fighting over a flaming pearl, but here it is clear that the Green Dragon of the East has claimed his prize, above the clouds and undisturbed. Not only is this a super sick design, it's also crazy comfortable and goes with just about any pair of jeans. Ancient history buffs will love it, and snoozers will wish they'd snagged it.
