I recently purchased a set of Hong Tze Chinese dragon figurines and each one is holding a ball or orb of some sort.
I’ve googled on it some and so far I can’t find any information as to the significance of the ball/orb.
I know I probably have better things to wonder about but not being able to find a answer is starting to bug me so any info on this would appreciated.
Oh, and what the hell is “Hong Tze” anyway? Is it a material, a style, a dynasty?
