The phoenix firebird is captured superbly. Flames are embossed at the tip of the pen, the phoenix is shown rising from the ashes with wings outspread, with the clip depicting the majestic tail. An amber crystal on the clip and cap add to the beauty and majesty of the firebird. This pen plants a tree.
Though the phoenix was popularised by the Harry Potter books and films, this sacred firebird’s story has roots in ancient civilisations. Every 1,000 years the phoenix builds itself a nest which burns fiercely until they are both ashes. From the ashes a young phoenix appears, renewing the life cycle of the bird and making the phoenix virtually immortal and invincible. The phoenix is a potent symbol of hope for those who have been through difficult times and triumphed.
Australian Red Cedar timber
This phoenix pen features Australian red cedar. Australian red cedar is possibly Australia's most celebrated native timber with its very fine grain in reddish brown and fine dark brown striations along the grain. In the 19th century red cedar dominated the interiors of colonial Australia and was used extravagantly for fine furniture and joinery in places such as Government House and Sydney Town Hall. Unfortunately many of the tall strands of red cedar were decimated on the NSW coast during the first 100 years of colonisation. In 1795 it was Australia’s first export, sending ships back to England full of timber. Red cedar is still highly sought after and readily available in North Queensland.
