Rise of the Phoenix

Phoenix

 

The Phoenix is a symbol of rebirth, of immortality really. The bird is a fire element; upon death, it bursts into flames. It dies and rebirths from its own ashes. The metaphor is beautiful.

I have depicted the phoenix here carrying a skull. Perhaps carrying its own death with it, unafraid. Maybe the skull is all that needs to be left behind before the phoenix can move on into a new world. You be the interpreter…

This piece is spray painted black, the skull is done in charcoal, and the phoenix in acrylic. Find it here in my Etsy shop.
