The Western common conception of a dragon as winged, four-legged, and capable of spewing fire is a High Middle Ages fabrication. Dragons are portrayed as monsters in western cultures, usually by saints or cultural heroes, who must be tamed or overcome. The term “dragon” has also been connected with good fortune in China. Only the Chinese emperor was authorized to put dragons on his residence, clothes, or personal items. Numerous communities in Mexico have worshiped a winged serpent god. Mexican designs with winged serpents are prevalent.
