My final entry for the Swarovski Competition 08.
Here is a proper photo of my piece "Rise of the Phoenix".
Phoenix is a oriental mystical creature of significant. Same level of significant compare to the Dragon. It represent the female (Yin) in comparison to the Dragon representing the male (Yang).
According to wiki search: Phoenix (mythology), a mythical bird that dies in flames and is reborn from the ashes.
My interpretation, in this case, is the Phoenix just reborn from the ashes.
