Chinese Dragons and the Pearl



"Many pictures of Oriental dragons contain a pearl.  Dragons with this dragon pearl, found normally under their chin, would be filled with the power to ascend to heaven (the Eastern dragon ascending in a cloud or in the sky can be taken to be symbolic of "success in life").  The pearl would multiply whatever it touched and is said to contain the dragon's immense wisdom.  Hence it is also known as the Pearl of Knowledge.  Some also believe it symbolizes the dragon as the "keeper of Tao", Tao referring to the perfectly balanced Yin and Yang symbol.  The pearl is also associated with wealth, good luck, and prosperity."
