In Chinese culture, the dragon is revered as a divine mythical creature, a symbol of power, strength, ealth and good fortune and ite is often portrayed chasing a luminous or flaming pearl.
The flaming pearl is viewed as a metaphor for wisdom, enlightenment and spiritual essence. It is also said to rid a person of their troubles, bringing career success as well as fortune and good health. Dragons are frequently depicted in pursuit of the flaming pearl, which is represented as swirling through mist, smoke and shadows.
The phoenix is regarded as an immortal bird whose rare appearance foreshadows harmony at the ascent to the throne of a new emperor. In Feng Shui, the dragon and the phoenix are considered perfect matches for one another. The phoenix is 'yin' while the dragon is 'yang' in the Chinese philosophical account of natural balance and interdependence.
