"Increase your good fortune with the Rising Dragon"
Although Western dragons and East Asian dragons share the same name in English, they have quite different images. Western dragons have the image of being terrifying monsters and are demonic symbols of evil. However, East Asian dragons are known as kings and messengers of the gods. (Such as in the famous manga Dragon Ball, where the dragon is a creature able to grant wishes.) Although East Asian dragons possess terrible powers, their roles as divine messengers and wish granters make them an object of worship.<br>The figure of a dragon ascending to the heavens found in pictures and sculptures is known as the "Rising Dragon." The image of a dragon rising up towards the heavens is meant to convey the meaning of valiant and ferocious spirit. There are also superstitions that hold that by putting up pictures or wearing items adorned with the image of the "Rising Dragon," one's spirit will become as bold as a dragon's, and one's luck can be improved.<br>We are producing a limited number of these uniquely special dragon slippers, possessing extraordinary beauty and radiance.
