PHOENIX S$65 sold

In ancient Egyptian mythology and in myths derived from it, the phoenix or phœnix is a mythical sacred firebird.

Said to live for 500 or 1461 years (depending on the source), the phoenix is a male bird with beautiful gold and red plumage. At the end of its life-cycle the phoenix builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs that it then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix arises. The new phoenix embalms the ashes of the old phoenix in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis ("the city of the sun" in Greek). The bird was also said to regenerate when hurt or wounded by a foe, thus being almost immortal and invincible — a symbol of fire and divinity.

The above extract says it all (I think) but basically that name just came to my head as I was assembling this piece. The colours are more vibrant in reality and I have taken this photo in direct daylight which makes it very sharp but without character ;d Take my word for it. Beautiful colours. ;p This is a lariat worn exactly like SUMMER BLOOMZ.
