Dragon, the zodiac sign of 2024, is the only fictional creature out of 12 zodiac animals.
There is a big difference in how dragons are perceived in the West and the East. In the West, they are typically portrayed as villainous nuisances that bring misery to people’s lives or kidnap a beautiful princess in fairy tales. They have the body of a dinosaur but with wings on their back, and even breathe fire. On the other hand, dragons in the East, often deified, can make it rain or save villages. They are long and slender like snakes and often holding a spherical gem in their claws. All these dragons, each with own unique personality, remain popular today as manga and anime characters.
For this exhibition, artists were asked to create zodiac-themed senga with dragon - strong, majestic and the owner of supernatural power - as a creative motif. We hope you will enjoy each artist’s interpretation of this popular mythical creature along with the Lucky Charms and Christmas-themed senga works.
