When you watch a phoenix burst into flames and be reborn in the movies they burst into a puff of ash and are suddenly a little naked baby. When you think of how rebirth happens in the legends of people who’s souls come back to earth after their passing it is a little different. Maybe a little less immediate anyways. Well I was reading about rebirth and the various lore and legends surrounding it when I came up with this image. A phoenix is nothing but fire at times and when its life burns low it turns to ash… but how does a baby come out of that? (magic you say- well not good enough if I can’t picture it) So I wondered if like in the rebirth process of people it may be a little more complicated than most think.. like maybe the ash becomes a hardened grey egg with a child inside. Now I could see that, and apparently I can draw it. This is how I picture the legend, even if it’s not exactly how others think of it. I hope you enjoy my artistic interpretation.
