    In China, the symbol of the empress is the Chinese equivalent of a phoenix, while the symbol of the emperor is a dragon. So I find it fitign that this forum is the Dragon's Den. Whether if it's intenstional or not, it is a very subtle touch that appreciate.

    Yes, phoenix fun facts. The Chinese phoenix is can Fenghuang. And she is the lord of all birds. This bird is the personified as the empress of China. But China also has another mythical bird called bisiniao which means immortal bird. The similiarty between the Chinese "phoenix" and the western thought of phoenixes are actually very small. The firebird style phoenix that rises from it's own ashes originates from Egyptian mythology. And in India, the phoenix is know as Garuda, which is the Vishnu's mount. Garuda is so big that its body blocks out the sun. Phoenixes are often symobols of immortality as well as rebirth.
