Chinese Phoenix Bird Digital Art

 Fenghuang, Wade-Giles romanization feng-huang, also called feng or (misleadingly) Chinese phoenix, in Chinese mythology, an immortal bird whose rare appearance is said to be an omen foretelling harmony at the ascent to the throne of a new emperor. Like the qilin (a unicorn-like creature), the fenghuang is often considered to signify both male and female elements, a yin-yang harmony; its name is a combination of the words feng representing the male aspect and huang the female.
