Artist's Description

Fenghuang, also known as a Chinese Phoenix bird. In Chinese traditional mythology, the phoenix represents the “Yin” or female, in counterpart to the dragon’s “yang”, or male. Male phoenixes were originally called “Feng” and the females called “huang”, but they have now been mixed into a single entity, the Fenghaung, which is traditionally deemed female in nature. The Chinese phoenix is not related to or similar to the Western Phoenix bird. The Western Phoenix bird is known for symbolizing rebirth and sets itself on fire and arises from its own ashes, but the Chinese Phoenix does not do this.
