The phoenix is a revered and sacred bird that in Chinese culture is known as the Fenghuang. This is because originally, there were two birds, male and female, feng and huang. They were seen as symbols of the ancient cosmic theory of Yin and Yang. Over time, the phoenix came to be seen as an exclusively female bird and was often associated with the male Chinese dragon. The phoenix is also central to Chinese cosmology. Following the god of creation known as Pangu, four creatures emerged from the egg of chaos: the dragon, a qilin, a tortoise, and a phoenix. Together, they are known as the Four Spirits.
