Definition

a mythological bird that set fire to itself every 500 years and arose from its own ashes again and lived for the next 500 years – someone who is unique, beautiful and admired – symbol of death, rebirth and resurrection

Example

The phoenix is a long-lived, immortal bird associated with Greek mythology (with analogs in many cultures) that cyclically regenerates or is otherwise born again. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. Some legends say it dies in a show of flames and combustion, others that it simply dies and decomposes before being born again.
