The Chinese dragon is the most important and powerful animal symbol in Chinese folklore and feng shui. It represents success and protection, and when paired with the phoenix becomes the symbol of yin and yang, or a happy marriage between a man and a woman. The dragon represents the man and the phoenix the woman; the phoenix is also regarded as the king of birds. Dragon and phoenix symbols are found in gifts of apparel, artwork and jewellery.
