A mythical bird. At the end of its life-cycle the phoenix builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs that it then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix arises. With regenerating abilities, thus being almost immortal and invincible-a symbol of fire and divinity. The Phoenix (*Bennu bird) became popular in Christian art, literature, and symbolism; as a symbol of Christ's resurrection, immortality, and life-after-death.
*[The Egyptians identified the phoenix as stork-like called a "benu". The Greeks adapted the work "bennu" meaning the color purple-red or crimson.]
