Phoenix in Flames

This beautiful Pheonix by ~EnnostielTheAviatrix nestled in a field of flames brilliantly renders the power and the glory of the mythic bird in a way that is both classic and abstract.

The way the lines so easily get lost in the fiery background shows the ubiquity of the great birds power as a vessel of immortal life and highlights the elusiveness of the beast.  I find myself staring deep into the image hoping it will still be there when I close my eyes.
