The Chinese phoenix exists only in legends and fairy tales. The phoenix was commonly referred to as the "King of Birds." As sovereign of all birds, it has the head of a golden pheasant, a parrot's beak, the body of a mandarin duck, the wings of a roc, peacock feathers and the legs of a crane. With its elaborate beauty, it reigns over the feathered world.
As a supernatural bird, the phoenix embodies the five virtues of benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom and sincerity. As such, it cannot harm either a single insect or a blade of grass. It perches itself only on the finest Firmiana tree, eating and drinking nothing but bamboo seeds and sweet spring water.
