Three Dragons for the Year of the Dragon

I've always been fond of dragons and always been fond of elegant drawings. With the year of the dragon just beginning, I found three beautiful drawings of dragons to share with you.  Click on the pictures to see them enlarged.  These three are Ottoman Empire dragons from The age of Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent by Esin Atil.
