Bēhance: Dragon Playing Cards by Pedro Felipe Giraldo Mejia

Pedro Felipe Giraldo Mejia is a Colombian artist. He decided to create playing card artworks devoted to different incarnations of dragons. These cards look like artworks affected by different cultures because they have different stylistics. Dragons are symbolic not only in Eastern mythology. Quite often mythographers mark out two main cultural traditions of dragons: the European dragon, and the Eastern dragon. The first one comes from European folk traditions based on Greek and Middle Eastern mythologies. The second one is a composite creature combining different dragons from East Asia countries (Chinese dragon, Japanese dragon, and other dragons from appropriate countries which have their own peculiarities). So, the artworks look like a collection of both “draconian” cultural traditions.
