The Phoenix is a mythical bird that is associated with the Egyptian sun god Ra and the Greek sun god Apollo. The Phoenix lives in Arabia, near cool oases. The Phoenix each morning bathes in the pool and sings beautiful bird song. There can only be one Phoenix a live at any one time. When the Phoenix feels its old and it's time to die, the Phoenix builds a nest then settles on it then sets it on fire. The Phoenix burns to death in the flames. From theses flames a new Phoenix emerges. The Phoenix symbolises immortality, resurrection and life after death, because of this it's often seen on sarcophagi and tombs.
