Photographer's Note

Dragon is a mythical creature we find reference to in European, Persian, Chinese, Indian, Japanese mythology. I believe these kind of creatures once roamed the world, otherwise how can you explain almost 2/3 rd of the world's ancient mythology talking about them.
I found this fine wood carved dragon on the gate of a ancient Vishnu temple in the old Chini village in Himachal Pradesh. The wood carving is exquisite and sublime, but sadly there are very few artists left in India who can produce this kind of magnificent art work.
