A Mythological symbol for death and resurrection, the Pheonix, was a stunningly beautiful firebird with brilliant feathers of gold and scarlet. It was said to be as large as an eagle and lived on dew drops. It's cry was so enchanting the sun would stop to listen. At the end of its life, about 500 years, it would build a nest of aromatic branches and spices, set it afire and allow itself to be consumed by the flames. Then it arose from the ashes and begin life anew, more beautiful than ever. The moral to the story of the Phoenix, as well as Emergence, is that within us all lie powers of regeneration and, no matter the challenges that confront us as depicted by Artist Jennifer MacNeill-Traylor with this 8˝" resin figure.
