Montegrappa is creating a valuable duo of oriental mythology by giving the Dragon its traditional companion, ETERNAL BIRD: Feng Huang, the phoenix, which can rise reborn from its own ashes. Today the symbol of rebirth and the individual spirit and always the symbol of the eternal death and rebirth of nature through the cycle of the seasons, the immortal bird appears with slight modifications in many far-flung transformations, through its constant association with the sun and with fire.
