Abstract

The concept of the Dragon is amalgamation of early tribes from the period of pre – historic era Ain the Chinese social structure. He is a proto - totemic beast later rise into a Dragon which we find each parts of his composition as a sacred body, meaning is attached denoting one of his qualities. In modern complex societies, with the specific interaction potentially drawn from different backgrounds, the distribution of cultural practices and knowledge of their meaning can become extremely complex. There cannot be making simple any local system or any patterns of interactions. The local social system or homogeneous has the highest degree of shared cultural practices. Cultural practices are those meaningful which forge and continue ongoing histories of social cultural coupling. The literature review on the Chinese cultural Dragon denotes that the geographical and social – cultural boundaries have been discrete and made relations with the different tribes and nations.
