A Chinese adage says, “One picture worth a thousand words!” Just look at this amazing painting, the description of which is: “Arhats (holy men) Ding Yun Peng. Ming dynasty, 1368 – 1644 BC, red and color on paper.” Here you see perhaps the earliest version of the traditional Chinese Dragon that adorns the roof of almost every temple in China. Will you just look at this 3.500 year old painting, please? And marvel? [this article is based on the fantastic picture research of Chris Parker from s8int.com/ DO visit his amazing site.]

Every school-child in China, Taiwan, and other Chinese places, learns already early on about their original Chinese patriarchs and their histories. But the most ancient Chinese history has become quite embellished over 4 1/2 thousand years and changed into mythology. As a result, the 21st Century Chinese are quite confused about their earliest primo-genitors, and if it weren’t for a very interesting discovery that this article reveals, their earliest patriarchs would have stayed obscure until the end of time.
