Legendary Dragons in Modern Graphic Designers Interpretation
Thousands of myths about the appalling creatures called dragons can be found in the folklore of practically every country. Although every nation describes them differently, endowing with some peculiar characteristics (for example, existence or absence of the bat-like wings, front legs, feathers or scales, etc.), all of us equally feel irrational fear of them. There is no single theory as for the reason or source of myths about dragons; however, some scientists suggest that fossil remains of dinosaurs – animals people have never seen alive, but witnessed their tremendous remnants – gave raise to the legends about huge, furious, fire-breathing creatures.
Dragons look imposing, fear-inducing, invulnerable, and invincible. They are characterized with supernatural power, sharp eye, wisdom, longevity and surely rage. Scientists suggest that mythological dragons just like large cats, snakes, and birds of prey possess the features a human being has an inherited instinctive fear of.
These legendary winged animals with serpentine and reptile features are not less popular today: they are featured in the movies and literature, portrayed on the art paintings, and often used on the logos of gothic bands.
