We have taken this high quality mold from a circa 17th

Complete with wall hanging hook.
This sculpture is made from our high quality marble mixture
so is fully weather proof.

The symbolism of the Phoenix, like the mystical bird itself,
dies and is reborn across cultures and throughout time.
Ancient legend paints a picture of a magical bird, radiant and shimmering,
which lives for several hundred years before it dies by bursting into flames.
It is then reborn from the ashes, to start a new, long life.

So powerful is the symbolism
that it is a motif and image that is still used commonly today in popular culture and folklore.
The legendary phoenix is a large, grand bird, much like an eagle or peacock.
It is brilliantly coloured in reds, purples, and yellows, as it is associated
with the rising sun and fire.

Sometimes a nimbus will surround it,
illuminating it in the sky. Its eyes are blue and shine like sapphires.
It builds its own funeral pyre or nest, and ignites it with a single clap of its wings.
After death it rises gloriously from the ashes and flies away.
