This week, we'll examine the Phoenix. The Firebird, Fêng-Huang, Ho-oo, Benu, or Yel. The myth of this self- rejuvanating bird cuts across almost every ancient culture often symbolizing death and rebirth; for the Phoenix is said to consumed by fire every 500 years only to be reborn among its own ashes. Aphone, Eigenheimer, The Orientalist, Phour Trakk, Hands upon Black Earth and Ecovillage
