The Phoenix myth goes all the way back to the ancient Egyptians, from where it spread through European and Asian civilizations. Cultures as far away as Persia and China have their own Phoenix myths, stories of a bird that lived several lifetimes before being consumed in flame. The story doesn’t end there, though, as the colorful bird is soon born again from the ashes, soaring into the sky to start its journey again.
The mix of shades of red, orange, and yellow truly look like the flaming pyre from which the Phoenix is born. And at 7 inches wide, the figure lives up to its large reputation!
