There is a Time Life series which includes a volume on Dragons. I t
is a collection of dragon art from a wide variety cultures. It is out
of print but you may find it in a library. My colleague paid
$50 for a copy from a used book search company. It is worth it.
The Asian dragon is interesting from the point of view of symbols.
For instance 5 toes is an Emperor's dragon - 4toes a noble person and
3 toes is the common persons dragon. The Asian dragon is made up of
specific animal parts in a specific combination. I don't have the
info at home so I will not venture a guess.
What I have done with this is to have the students design a personal
dragon combining animal and human parts. Once we used colored and
silver foil paper and cut/glued the parts and used sharpie markers to
scale and color luminescent creatures. I had forgotten these great
creations! Time to do it again
