Singapore Philatelic Museum houses Dragon exhibition

The Singapore Philatelic Museum is ushering the Chinese New Year with an "Imagine Dragons" exhibition with over 300 stamps and philatelic materials dating from 1959 to 2012 that will take children on a quest to explore the world of these imaginary creatures.

While the dragons in the west are often portrayed as evil creatures to be feared, in the east they are respected and sign good fortuner. The Chinese ‘long’ () is the most common dragon in Singapore, and is made up of the parts of at least seven different animals. "Imagine Dragons" exhibition will be from 23 January until December 2012.
