The legend of the Chinese phoenix states that it is the mythical king of all birds. With the head of a peacock, body of a swan and wings of a golden cockerel, they are believed to be messengers of happiness. Incidentally, the Chinese phoenix is not related to the bird that we know in the Western world that rises from the ashes and symbolises rebirth. The phoenix appears on historical objects dating back thousands of years, suggesting that its origins stretch back to the very beginning of Chinese culture. It was once believed to only appear during times of peace and prosperity, and that rare treasures would be found where they stopped to rest. Some literary sources claim that the mythical phoenix has its roots in a prehistoric, possibly ostrich-like large bird that lived in China. The original Chinese name of the phoenix, feng huang , incorporates the notions of feng , a male bird, and huang , a female one.
