Do you know the Chinese phoenix?
Phoenix-the legendary bird that many including I have not seen but wish to see. Any mention about this bird (can it really fly?) anywhere evokes avid interest-right?
I read about it recently in the Internet that this Chinese phoenix also known as the fenghuang, is a mythical Chinese bird fabled to reign over all other birds.
Though there was initially a distinction between the male which is called as feng and the female as huang, today the two are often combined into a single feminine entity that pairs with the masculine Chinese dragon to symbolize the yin-yang principle with respect to marital harmony.
Of course, it ate snakes!
