Dragon Thursday – Bendigo’s Dragons

Good morning!

My friend Sally from Australia has been keeping me updated on the wonderful imperial dragons from the city of Bendigo in Victoria, Australia. 

The imperial dragons are at the Golden Dragon Museum in Bendigo.

This video gives you the history of the museum and some information on the two Imperial Dragons that reside there.   Loong, 126 year old, is the world’s oldest imperial dragon and Sun Loong, the longest imperial dragon in the world.

Sun Loong:

The Dragon that changed a town’s identity

 

These are beautiful dragons with a fascinating history.   Next week look for more on these dragons and how the curators of the Golden Dragon Museum are helping save a Hong Kong tradition.
