Chinese dragon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1377 words)
Long a potent symbol of auspicious power in Chinese folklore and art, it is the embodiment of the concept of yang and associated with the weather and water as the bringer of rain.
That explains why the Chinese dragon has a body of a snake; the scales and tail of a fish; the antlers of a deer; the face of a qilin (a deer-like mythical creature with fire all over its body); and two pairs of talons of eagles; and the eyes of a demon.
In some Chinese legends, an emperor might be born with a birthmark in the shape of a dragon.
Chinese Cultural Studies:  Stephen F Teiser: Spirits of Chinese Religions (15596 words)
Acknowledging the wisdom of Chinese proverbs, most anthologies of Chinese religion are organized by the logic of the three teachings (_sanjiao_) of Confucianism, Daoism, and Buddhism.

What mattered to Chinese audiences-- both the larger audience for the novels and dramas about the pilgrim and the much smaller one capable of reading his translations--was that the Chinese texts were based on a valid foreign original, made even more authentic by Xuanzang's personal experiences in the Buddhist homeland.
