Yinglong Fujun


I also draw. Maybe I draw too much and write too little.

《山海經·大荒東經》:「大荒東北隅中,有山名曰凶犁土丘。應龍處南極,殺蚩尤與夸父,不得復上,故下數旱。旱而為應龍之狀,乃得大雨。目開而日出,目閉而日落。」

In the great wilderness of the North-east, there is a hill named Mound (sic) Xiong-li [Fierce-plow]. Yinglong1 lives at its south end; since he took the lives of Chiyou and Kuafu2, he can no longer return to the sky. The Earth became plagued with frequent droughts.3 When in a drought, people would dress up as Yinglong, and they would then receive a heavy rainfall. When the eyes of Yinglong open, the sun rises; when the eyes of Yinglong close, the sun sets.

-The Classic of the Great Wilderness: The East, Classic of Mountains and Seas

1 Responding Dragon or Winged Dragon.
2 Yinglong helped Yellow Emperor to slay Chiyou the war god and Kuafu the drought giant since they rebelled against the Yellow Emperor. But taking the lives of celestial beings prevents Yinglong from ascending to heaven ever again.
3 Yinglong is a deity responsible for rainmaking.
