In fact the symbol of the dragon has served a great many purposes in Chinese history. Morgan says that it is a symbol of guardianship and vigilance and that it was "consecrated by the earliest religion of the Chinese people.

Daoism: and the arts of China I never found the dragon used in a religious context in Chinatown. Mostly, the dragon was used to mark something as "Chinese," from the boundary markers of Chinatown the lamp posts and gate , to teacups and wall murals in Chinese restaurants.

Within the present context, however, I do not consider it to be religious. This theme of latent, dark power pervades the rest of the record, while the accompanying music does the opposite, seducing with smiling rhythm and jaunt.
