I grew up along the Mississippi River in Southern Illinois. In one of the towns along the river not far from where I grew up, high on the bluffs, is a painting of a strange creature painted by the ancient Indians of the area.

 

When Marquette and Joliet went up the Mississippi river, Marquette noted the painting in his journals. He referred to it as a "bird like monster painted high on the bluffs." He described it as:

 

     "Was as large as a calf with horns like a deer, red eyes, a beard

       like a tiger's, a face like a man, the body covered with green, red,

       and black scales and a tail so long it passed around the body, over

       the head and between the legs."

 

The creature is called "The Piasa"  (pronounced pie-a saw) by the Illini Indians. The name means: a bird that devours men.

 

The ancient indians painted pictures of things they actually saw. And I believe this creature at one time existed. I also believe the creature is a dragon.

 

When I was a child and my parents would go to the bigger towns to do their shopping, we always passed by the painting. I was 3 years old when I called it, "the dragon." I knew that once I saw the dragon on the bluffs, it was not long before I would be helping my mother pick out our supplies for the month. (I grew up on a farm and we grew most of what we ate.) 

 

I believe in dragons, I believe they once existed and I believe my spirit guide is a beautiful purple dragon. (I have seen her)

 

There is no country in the world that does not have a folk lore or two about them. They are to this day seen on family crests. Even Merlin the mighty magician called upon the power of the dragon before he performed his magic.

 

The dragon is one of the oldest legends in the world and one described in many many ways.

 

What do you think?

That is a very neat picture, mon ami!!

I, too, believe in dragons, but do not tell most people as they would not understand.  I believe they exist on a spiritual plane but can also be in the physical plane. I also believe that many myths about dragons came from dinosaur bones, but I also believe that Shamans and Seers saw dragons in their actual forms.

I believe I saw one once, but I won't discuss it here. I sound like a dreamer and a crazy person when I talk of them. lol.

I know what you mean. i have a collection of winged dragons and when people ask my why I collect them I always tell them because I believe they once and still do exist and they are beautiful creatures. They look at me as if I have lost my mind.

hi, spooky, crazy healer lady,

 

Just been reading your posts, and i do believe that animals we hear about in legends or myths, even old wife's tales, have a lot of truth in them, i can't say I've ever been fortunate enough to see any but that doesn't mean i don't believe that they have existed at sometime in the past.

 

If you believe in these and other things, then stand your ground and when people look at you with that funny look, just sigh and remember that they are not on your level, and one day when they are on your level they will realise how you felt when people start looking at them as if their crazy. 

 

There is an awful lot of people out there who for one reason or another won't say in public what they believe in because of other people making them feel stupid or inadequate i think this is a shame, and people should be proud of their beliefs and differences, and embrace them and in doing so help other people to understand them.

 

Anyway i think i have said enough on this subject, and i really like the picture of the dragon, (looks like a dragon to me anyway)

 

Namaste

Thank you shinninlite and chrissy. One thing i have found out about some "urban" legends........their beginnings have some sort of truth to them. It was just lost thru each telling over the years.

You would be amazed at just how many moder day dragon sightings there are. In Lake Tienchi, China back in 2004 no less than 500 people saw a serpentine creature with a horned, horse-like head leapinfg from the water.

In 2006 in West Afrca i saw a whole village that had bn abandoned after a sightig of a drago-like animal in the swamps. We also met a man who claimed to have seen it. He pointed out a picture of a Chinese dragon as the animal most like the creature he had seen.

I have collected modern day dragon sightings and writtern two books about them 'Dragons: More Than a Myth' from CFZ Pres and 'Explore Dragons' from Heart of Albion.
