Details

Dragons are mythical creatures, originally representing the hidden powers of the Earth. Early representations are not the familiar four-legged winged creatures, but snake-like beasts with fierce heads and looped tails, without legs but sometimes with tiny wings. Only later did they become the heraldic version we know, with four legs and large wings, a design possibly influenced by the Chinese dragon, which is elongated and scaly, with legs, wings and an elaborate tail.

Folk tales tell of malevolent dragons rising from the earth or from lakes and rivers, being eventually conquered or subdued by a local hero. Images of serpent-dragons are sometimes found in medieval buildings and churches; some have two heads facing in different directions, while others are joined up so that they swallow their own tails.
