The magnificent scarlet and gold plumage of the massive phoenix can be mistaken for no other bird. There is only one phoenix in existence, and they live for an extraordinarily long amount of time. As the time comes for one phoenix to end and the next to begin a nest is built of delicious smelling spices and sticks. The phoenix bursts into flames and from the ashes is reborn.
Because of the beautiful imagery this bird inspired the Egyptians who worshiped them with Re, the sun god, and held the immortal beings in the highest honor. The Romans used the phoenix as a symbol to reflect the sun never setting on their far-reaching empire. Later Christianity used the phoenix as a symbol rebirth through Christ.
