字形:

 

字的古体就是中国人对于这种神秘动物的想象的样子。中国人观念中的龙不同于西方的龙,更有别于自然界中的动物,它的形态是一个自然界动物的复合体,它的身体像蛇,耳朵像牛,角似鹿,掌似虎,爪似鹰,鳞似鱼。龙是中国人心目中最为神圣的动物,它能够呼风唤雨、上天入地。龙也是中华民族的象征。

The ancient form of the character "" was what this mysterious animal looked like in ancient Chinese people’ mind. Chinese dragon is different from that of the West, and even more different from other animals in the nature. It was a combination of several animals in real life. Its body was like that of a snake; its ears an ox; its horns a deer; its paws a tiger; its claws an eagle; and its scales fish. The dragon was the most sacred animal in Chinese culture. It was said to be able to control the forces of nature and go up high into the heaven and down deep into the sea. Dragon is also a symbol of the Chinese nation.
