“Fenghuang” ink & watercolors

I find the Chinese phoenix to be more inspiring than the western version. The Chinese phoenix, “Fenghuang” symbolizes virtue, grace, & has often been used to symbolize the union of yin & yang. It is very posititive in nature, and is probably most often found in the decorations for weddings or royalty.
