This is another Eastern type of dragon as it has no wings but still magically flies through the air. Notice the Earth clutched in one hand and the Yin Yang in the other. Yin Yang is a concept of Chinese philosophy that states that apparently opposing forces, qualities, characteristics, etc., are connected and give rise to each other and are both contained within all things. They seem to work against each other but cannot exist without the other. This philosophy carries over a lot into neopaganism-especially the idea that a male deity alone is a nonsensical idea thus giving rise to goddess worship alongside a male god.
