Sobre el lomo del dragón is an artistic project inspired by one of the countless legends surrounding Ha Long Bay in Vietnam. In Vietnamese, Ha Long means “dragon descending to the sea”. Legend has it that a great dragon flew over the mountains and plunged into the sea in a stunning bay of green water and jungle-covered rocks. His huge tail shattered that landscape into tiny islands. The dragon was so pleased with the scenery he had created that he settled there with his family for ever more. Sailors who frequent the bay still believe that a sea creature emerges from the depths of Ha Long from time to time, and they say that the islands shift and change their position.
