  9. 9. Why I Did this Dragon Design!I read 2 myths about farming with dragons in it.1. Once upon a time, there was once a river dragon who controlled all sources of water. The dragon constantly falls asleep so the land becomes dry in a few months for that is how long he sleeps. The gods did not like this so he let humans have the instrument called the drum! This easily woke up the dragon and that is how they brought rain for their crops for a long time until the dragon got the habit of getting up more frequently.
  10. 10. 2nd MythOnce upon a time there were 4 dragons, they didn’t like the earth being parched all the time so they asked the gods to give humans a better source of water. They promised but they never did. So the dragons stole water for humans in the form of rain and defied the gods who hunted them for a long time until one day they all turned themselves into four long different rivers in China for Songhua humans to use forever. river Yellow Yangtze River River Pearl River
