Learn how to make a dragon puppet with your MFA art kit or materials from home
In Japan, people traditionally believe that dragons are powerful and protective. Japanese dragons are thought to live in the mountains, lakes, rivers, and the sky. They are made of parts from other powerful creatures. Take a look at the dragon in the picture above. Can you find a body like a snake? Claws like an eagle? Horns like a deer?
