Phoenix (fly like a sun) by sintel16 Phoenix (fly like a sun) by sintel16
There is a bird that lays no eggs and has no young. It was here when the world began and is still living today, in a hidden, faraway desert spot. It is the phoenix, the bird of fire.

In Greek mythology a phoenix is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. According to legends the
 Phoenix consumed itself by fire every 500 years, and a new Phoenix sprang from it's ashes. In ancient Egypt, the Phoenix represented the sun. Early Christian tradition adopted the phoenix as a symbol of immortality and resurrection.
As the legend goes, when the phoenix resurrects from the flames, she is even more beautiful and stronger  than before. 

...

“Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?'
'Hmm . . . What do you think?' said Luna, looking thoughtful.
'Well then, I think the answer is that a circle has no beginning.'
...

I made this one for my dear soul sister :iconpongisit: who inspired me greatly with her beautiful  fiery soul :)
I hope you like it Mayu

Sorry for the late reply, I don't liked it, I loved it, I feel so honored to be able to follow your progression as an artist, you are getting better at every new piece you make, even if you haven't found that personal style that you are seeking, what you already got is amazing and quite unique if you allow me to say. Keep the light shining Hug  .

I am very glad as well, I am really missing our regular conversations. If you allow me to give an suggestion, I believe that the title "Phoenix" is too much simple, what do you think of "Fly like the sun"? In my opinion it translates better the greatness of your picture ;) (Wink) .
