The ancients believed that dragon was the symbol of the supreme auspiciousness, a bridge between man, Heaven and the Deities. They thought that the dragon was able to summon wind and rain, ascend to and descend from Heaven, and produce auspicious signs. The dragon even appeared in astronomy and numerology, and influenced the passing of the imperial power. In primitive times, the legendary phoenix was the God of Protection. It was graceful and noble. Its head was like that of a pheasant, and its body was like that of a mandarin duck. It had the wings of a roc, the legs of a crane, the beak of a parrot and the plumes of a peacock. Chief of all the birds, the phoenix was a symbol of auspiciousness, beauty and peace.It is really a treasuable piece of art as well as a powerful and auspicious amulet!
