In the center an opening flower that reveals a dragon’s eye staring straight out into the world as if in a trance. The design continues out to the Yin Yang symbols that spin in harmony around the flower. Above the Yin Yang is a serpent dragon that moves in an infinity symbol chasing its tail as a sign of its long life while pink clouds float by peacefully. Around the edge is a boarder of red and yellow that fight for dominance but are forever equal.
