On January 11, 2014, at the Chuhe river shore in Liuhe district, Nanjing, more than 10,000 pieces of blue and white porcelain were pieced together to create this striking 100-meter long Chinese dragon.
According to local reports, the “China dragon” was created for the fifth Liuhe Chuhe River Lantern Festival. It is framed with steel bars and bedded with white foam on the inside. The outside was banding with seven kinds of recycled stoneware including that from porcelain bowls, porcelain plates, porcelain mugs all manufactured from Jingdezhen (also known as Ching-te-chen, the “Porcelain Capital”).
