Time Period: Painting was completed in 2001.
Description:There are two dragons fighting. One is the East and one is the West. The one on the right is the western dragon and the one on the east is the eastern dragon. I actually think this is all self-explanatory. Each dragon has different charasteristics because the western dragon has wings and has other characteristics of dragons countries like North and South America. Eastern dragons have a serpent like body and are drawn in a Chinese style and has the characteristics of Eastern dragons.
Here is the website that gives a lot of information on dragons in general and some specifically on Chinese dragons. There are also lots of pictures to look at.
