Wizard's Companion Talisman
Much of dragon lore tells us that dragons were loathsome beasts and evil enemies to humankind. But dragons were born of a time other than men; a time of chaos; a time of creation out of destruction! The dragon is a fabulous and universal symbolic figure found in most cultures thought the world. Some examples of the symbology of the dragon are: The Gnostics: “The way through all things.” Alchemy: “A winged dragon – the volatile elements; without wings – the fixed elements.” The Chinese: “The spirit of the way”‘ bringing eternal change. The guardian of the ‘Flaming Pearl” symbol of spiritual perfection and powerful amulet of luck.
“Go quickly, Wiglaf, examine the hoard under the gray stone, now that the dragon lies sleeping…Be in haste so that I may see the ancient treasure, may examine the curious gems, so that I may more cheerfully give up my life and country.” Beowulf.
