Phoenix

Phoenix is a mythical bird, serving usually as a symbol of immortality, as well as an image of the periodic destruction and rebirth. Being a "fiery bird," it signifies the divinity of royal power, nobility and uniqueness, as well as humility. In all traditions, it acts as a solar symbol. Phoenix is an attribute of the allegorical image of hope and symbolizes constancy and triumph of eternal life over death.

In Russia the Phoenix had its analogues: Zhar-Ptitsa and Finist. Zhar-Ptitsa is a fiery bird, its feathers shine like a silver and gold like flames, and its eyes shine like a crystal.

For catching the Zhar-Ptitsa a golden cage with apples inside is used as a trap. It's impossible to catch it barehanded, because you can get burned on its tail. The Zhar-Ptitsa brought in a dark room can light it and replace the richest light. In time, such feather turns into a golden.

The idea of a phoenix contained in a golden cage has found an original solution: the dial with Phoenix in a golden case of a watch.
