Other discoveries occurred in the province near a village in Fuyuan, southwestern China on 22 January 2007. Local residents found small dragon fossils that have been attached to the stone slab in a cave on top of a hill.
The farmers in the village has been excavating fossils since 2000 to find the "remnants" of the dragon legend was inspired by the discovery of a dragon on display in Guizhou. The farmers do it to supplement their income by selling these fossils to the researchers.
Previously, to prove the existence of the dragon, Chinese archaeologists conduct excavations since 1983 in several locations believed once occupied by the ancient Chinese civilization. The first excavations conducted around Niuheliang village, at the foot of Red Mountain (Red Mountain). Precisely, located in the valley of the River Liachoe location. Of some of the findings prove, that in this area once occupied a fairly advanced ancient civilization thousands of years ago.
In the first excavation, the archaeologists found two pieces of a dragon-shaped jade. This jade carved finely dragon, green transparent. The first discovery, according to the archaeologists are very valuable. From the evidence it looks civilization thousands of years ago is already familiar with the culture and the engraving is very fine not less beautiful with sculptured results today
Excavation until 2003 that involved dozens of archaeologists from the Research Institute of Lioning Province, and has completed work on 16 websites. They rummaged through the site in the area of ​​1,576 square meters. Dig six graves are the graves of ancient alleged leaders of the future.
Fossil Excavation

From the results of these excavations, found 479 pieces of evidence that lead to the existence of a monster in the form of fossil jaws and other body parts that are considered part of the body of a large snake. Including three pieces of a dragon statue made of delicate jade, which is found from the ancient tombs. It is said that the findings of the jade dragon statue, similar to the findings of the excavations in the village Sanxingtala in 1970. This village in the territory in Monggolia In Cipeng City.
Professor So Bingqi, a renowned archaeologist in China and is the Chairman of the China Association of Archaeologists said the latest findings remains to be investigated further. Especially with the carbon test, to determine the age of ancient animals and reconstruct the entire physical form.
Excavations carried deeper, to look for other fossil parts that could prove, whether it is a reptile fossils or indeed ordinary dragon who allegedly lived a few thousand years younger than the time of ancient animals Dinosaurs, T-Rex, Brontosaurus and ancient animals other.
But of body size, which is smaller than a dinosaur, allegedly finding it indeed is a kind of snake predators. As it is seen from a very sharp fangs that leads to the inside, as well as on other predators found earlier as T-Rex.

Research around the valley of the River Liachoe continued archaeologists, to determine whether this finding was the only evidence or there is still another. It turns out of the archaeologists was not in vain, digging in "Red Mountain Goddess", it found other evidence that supports each other. Similar findings in this location, find some other evidence that corroborates the presence of the dragon.
Both archaeologists and Daahun Bingqi, Task Team members search evidence to conclude the existence of the dragon, a snake that has been mythologized exist. Only if the form was perfect, as depicted in the form of a dragon statue like in a monastery or just plain ancient serpent? All of that is still in question. Archaeologists are still looking for other evidence, and reconstruct it perfectly.
For a while, they managed reconstructing the fossil snake was a kind of ancient animal. It is evident, from the frame of the head that leads to a snake skeleton. It is still not perfect, as some other parts that allegedly form cartilage shape is still vague. But all archaeologists believe, it is a fossil fossils dragons, snakes ancestors now.
Doubts about the actual shape of a dragon, while they agreed to picture dragon sculptures made from thousands of years ago, it allegedly represents the actual shape dragon despite supporting evidence is still detected.
They also agree that the picture is found in the form of jade dragon statue (statue of broken down gold and bronze, was estimated to be over 8,000 years old) is a picture of the original form of the dragon is now living fossil.
In the end, the evidence that dragons ever existed, deserves to be supported by expectations of these animals should be representative of the form of goodness. Because it is not possible, The Chinese worship and other nations because of the good things that have been done by a dragon or "similar animals big snake" to man in times of old.

He was six times led his troops into battle against the aggressor from England, but six times the fighting, troops always battered beaten by the enemy, until the defeat and was forced to flee to the forest. Finally, he himself is also hiding in an abandoned hut in the jungle.
One day, the rain was falling, the rain water from the roof of the house broke the leaking of the face Bruce, so he woke up from his sleep. For a moment he contemplated her fate is unfortunate because it can not defeat the enemy, even though he has been exerting all efforts.

Donkey and the salt load

Donkey and the salt load. A merchant, led his donkey to pass through a shallow river. So far they have gone through the river without ever having a single accident, but this time, his donkey slipped and fell when they were right in the middle of the river. 

When traders are finally able to bring his ass to the edge of the river and its cargo safely, most of the salt carried by donkeys have melted and dissolved into the water stream. Feel happy because the load has been reduced so that the load is taken to be lighter, the donkey was very excited when they resumed their journey.

The next day, the traders returned with cargo of salt. The Donkey that given his experience yesterday when slipping in the middle of the river, deliberately let himself slip fall into the water, and eventually he was able to reduce the burden back to the way it was.

Traders who feel angry, then bring the donkey back to the market, which is in charge the donkey with baskets very large and contains a sponge. When they arrived back in the middle of the river, the donkey back deliberately flopped, but when the merchant took him to the edge of the river, the donkey became very uncomfortable because they have to be forced to drag him back home with a load ten times heavier than the previous due to the inclusion of a sponge absorbs water river.

Fairy or Pixie

Fairy or Pixie is a term that is often used in folklore, fairy tales, fiction, to describe a creature that has supernatural powers, and sometimes intervene in human affairs. In Indonesia, the term is often used in the translation of fairy figures depicting an elf or a fairy (the term in English) in fiction and tales from Europe.

On modern fiction, the characters from fairy often in all adopt the original version, and is used in contemporary fantasy fiction with a variety of drawing, hanging by the author or creator.  The word "fairy" has been misused throughout the history of the English language by the human race. There is a belief that the word "fairy" is an ancient term, which emerged after the mid-term is defined as evil women who have magical powers.

In England the name was originally derived from the word fairy Elvish since before the year 1000 AD, meaning the fairies. In folklore, the supernatural beings is a powerful racial group.

According to the Indo-European root, it is likely that the name originated from albiz, although its origin is unknown, which is a derivation of albho, which means "white". This word became popular among white people until now. In modern times, can still be found existence as surnames and family names, such as: Ælfræd "Advisory-fairy" (Alfred), Ælfwine "Friend-Fairy" (Alvin), Aelfric "fairy Government" (Eldridge), and also name- woman's name, as Ælfflæd "beauty-fairy". 

Elf name is also associated with hair interrelated, which is believed to bring misfortune, if the connection is released. French term "fai" comes from the Latin Language "fatae" which means fairy women who visited a home when there is a birth and foresee the future of the baby, as was done by the three fates (Three fates).

The word "fairy" actually means "fat-erie", such as "state ofenchanment and that transferred fromthe object to the agent". Pixie is a "runt" who has great power and authority, especially in the Celtic and Irish mainland.  For people of Irish descent, peri-peri is the origin of their descendants, the Tuatha de Danaan. They are better known as the "Daoine Sidhe" or "Sidhe" (pronounced "Shee") in Ireland, "Sith" in Higlands, "Pisgies" in Cornwall, and "elves" in Scotland / UK.

According to some researchers, the English term is most appropriate for people with attention problems ethnicity is "Elf". Although the term "Elf" is often a matter of controversy, the author Poortvliet and Huygen, "Elves" is the spirit / soul of air from nature, who loves dancing happily dances and plays stringed musical equipment.

They can also live underground, inside / on the water, in the air, and most of them have wings. Although Elf general term for the tiny people, the other terms are also often used as "sprites", "pixie", "nixie", "fauns", "brownies", "dwarves", "leprechauns", and "fairy ( elf) ".

"Sprite" is a general term for midgets like "pixies", "spirit which means wood spirits, water, or natural spirits, elves from Celtic called" Faeries ". "Dwarf" is commonly used to mention "Dark Elves", but the most commonly preferred term is "The Good Neighbors".

Some other names that they preferred: "The SeelieCourt", "Them Ones", "The Strangers", "The little People", "The Fair Folk", "The Good Folk", "The Forgetful Folk", "The Hidden Folk "," Them "," Mother's Blessing "," The Lovers "," The Night Folk "," The Little Darling ", etc..

There is some controversy among researchers as to who the Good Neighbors is or in other words, What are they exactly? When the question is dealt with in a discussion, we usually get a variety of responses, but most of the human mind mengkonsepkannya as "wee (small)" or "little (small)".

Elves are often told to have a form similar to humans, often also believed to be the embodiment of the spirit or jinn who incarnated as a beautiful woman who likes to interrupt. Fairies sometimes described as having a long and pointy ears, and have long hair. Peri also often described could shapeshift, or take the form of a beautiful woman who can suddenly disappear. 

Peri also often identified as mythological beings. In the depiction in folklore that uses the term "fairy", is often different definition of what it actually fairies, on the one hand this name is often associated with supernatural beings, such as demons, but on the other hand, the fairies are described as being more real.

"Elves" can take various forms, as a people with a variety of beauty, god of sex, old women, men limp / lame hunchback, goats, cows, pigs, witches, caterpillars, butterflies, cats, rocks, leaves, plants, cobwebs, or even a breeze. Their size ranges from the size of an insect to a larger size than humans. They are unstable and easily change shape in various forms and nature, and can not be distinguished from one another.

Too many experts tales (folklorist) is conducting research to investigate this phenomenon first, this is not the case. Many researchers stated that the description of the dwarf with the insect wing is a simple evolution of knowledge and customs, initially these stories do not portray them as small or dwarf, it actually has the same size as humans.

As to the question whether they exist or not, all we need to do is ask an Irishman who would briefly replied, "I do not believe in fairies, but they are there".

Elves can be described as good (helping people) or evil. Described benevolent fairy is a fairy house that lived with humans. However, not all illustrated fairy house out in the evening, there was also a house elf that came out during the day.

While described as a cause of the evil fairy misled anyone in his way. Peri is also often described as mischievous (naughty and fun), whether good or mischief that brings disrepute. In Europe a naughty little boy and difficult to control is often described as "just like a little fairy".

The depiction of the origins of fairies are often associated with a type / class of supernatural creatures such as demons, which often originate from mountainous areas. Didi they live underground, inside / on the water, and in the air. 
However, in its development, fairies portrayed as small creatures that can sleep on flowers, live in the forest and the trees keep the so-called fairy forest, or staying indoors with humans like a house elf character.

In Legend

Many Christians believe that they are angels who rebelled in heaven, and then thrown out, and because they are not too nasty to go to hell, they are sent to live forever on earth and that is why they could very well act like angels or otherwise as the devil.

Many believe paintings are artistic fairies with wings, an amalgamation of the angel made by Christians. Some are given as a variation of the dwarfs with insect wings, body size, shadow ghosts, half beast and half man, and has the nature of god.

Confidence in the Good Folk flourished in the past when everything was surrounded by spirits / ghosts. Trees or corals lose the name "Fred" or "Krystal" which is part of the daily life of the nation. So is the "Good Folk". They are symbolized by a title and play an important role in everyone's life. 

But this is a time when everyone believed in many gods, gods, spirits, ancestors, and creatures. Nowadays, if someone stated, believe in fairies they are often ostracized. "So, if they exist, why can not we see it?" This is a question that may arise in our minds all the time.

Ranging from "nature spirit (nature spirits)", happy, sad, angry, happy, nature keperian, resentment, grim, hostile, love, and hate, as "nature itself" (they take a variety of different forms, as the energies of "Mother Earth"), droughts, storms, earthquakes, dim light, peace, peace, or destruction.

They are not limited to our world, they can bounce between both worlds with a moving finger or wrinkled her nose. They have a natural magic skills that can make them quickly is not visible and can never be seen by human eyes, but of their own volition to be seen. Because of their ability to reason, man can not see them. Many exercise or discipline to do to overcome obstacles allow ourselves to see them. 

In the childhood mind and limits the mind has not been damaged by a variety of behavior / habits, sehigga children often get to see them, without difficulty and will tell their tale vision with pride (of course make their parents were surprised with their imaginary friends and make them feel stupid to believe in things like that).

In the songs that contain magical powers the web of life can also make us able to see them easily, such as the poet, astrologer, musician, shaman, one who has clairvoyance (the sharpness of feelings), and naturalist.

Hallucinogenic substances and herbs, magical ceremonies, and changes in circumstances, can also allow many people to get to see them. A conviction even though the conditions for opening relations with them have emotional ties or "blood relationship" with them.

Relationships with them are considered very difficult to do, especially sexual relations, and both are limited by various taboos.

A very brilliant movie produced in 1993 for children called "Fern Gully". This movie gives a detailed and interesting story about the separation between fairy and human world.

Where this movie brings Hollywood fantasy elements, animation, trend over patrial (paternal line), and the parable - this brings the true heart and spirit of the wood. They are guarded by wooden dilindungidan. They are also protected by the natural reefs, land, sea, or sky.

They are the natural mother of children that may be necessary for us to watch. Somewhere along the way we lost that relationship. So where are they hiding?
