The dragon was drawn using scrolls to give the impression of movement. Its design resembles rather an ornamental decoration than a Japanese dragon. The illustration has a good drawing quality, and you can use it in a 3D CAD program to draw a relief. Like all the other dragons from Asian mythology and folklore, the Japanese dragon is a wingless, serpentine creature with four sturdy, clawed feet. Unlike the European dragons, the Asian ones are benevolent creatures and represent a positive symbol related to the water element (not fire).
