Phoenix and Dragon by rebeccawangart Phoenix and Dragon by rebeccawangart
07.12.2007, Conté pastel pencils on 32" x 40" black paper.

A great silver dragon births a phoenix from his fiery breath, as they fly around a sun mandala.

In Chinese literature, the Dragon represents the male, or Yang, while the phoenix represents the female, or Yin. They complement one another, creating balance. When together, they are the symbol of marital happiness and harmony.

i really love this illustration!! looking it up because of a story i've been following, in my dreams and symbolic life recently. quick summary: i see spirits and stuff, and i'm clairvoyant. when i close my eyes then i see the dragon, but the phoenix is hidden behind a dark circle like an eclipse covering it. i wonder why this is. but then someone told me it's the midnight of the soul, or something like that. (and that i do the midnight shift a lot for whatever reason but i don't know about all that, i just hear voices every now and then). glad i found your work, i found this on google and saw the signature and just guessed you'd be on deviantart. glad to find you here!

Thank you for your comments! I am glad you like this artwork, it is one of my favorite pieces. That is a very interesting interpretation of the Phoenix and Dragon. The Phoenix does represent the feminine, the yin, and darkness, so maybe your vision has something to do with that as well.

i'm still working on understanding it myself, there's something real and spiritual in this myth (as in many of them) i want to discover

The Chinese Dragon wasn't known to breath fire like western dragons, instead it was associated with the water, and Air, though their was one legend that the land of china it's self was a sleeping Dragon, and any nation that dare oppose china would have to face it's wrath, so it could also be associated with earth

a water dragon of blue and silver sounds a lot like a naga. but i guess also like 'haku' in 'spirited away'
