The blue color of the dragon symbolizes its dominance in the night skies, where it reigns as the guardian of the moon. It is believed that dragons reflect the moon’s glow on their scales, giving them magical power.
The blood flows down the horn after a battle with hostile forces of darkness, protecting the nocturnal light. Its eyes still burn red with fury.
Thus, in the painting “Chimera of the Moon,” the dragon serves as a symbol of the eternal connection between ancient myths and the mysteries of the cosmos, intertwining in the image of a chimera against the backdrop of the moon.
