Phoenix by Consolous Phoenix by Consolous
"According to the most popular variant of the phoenix, the bird lives in Arabia for 500 years at the end of which, it burns itself and its nest. In the version of the phoenix described by Clement, an ante-Nicene (basically, before Constantine legalized Christianity in the Roman Empire) Christian theologian, the phoenix' nest is made of frankincense, myrrh and spices. A new phoenix always rises from the ashes.

Ancient sources on the mythological phoenix bird, include Clement, Ovid, Pliny, Tacitus, and Herodotus."

This one's really eyecatching, and you can clearly see that the bird is burning. And I really like the feeling of movement in this one. Great work! :peace:
