Although 鳳凰 is often translated as Phoenix it really has no connection to the European legend of a bird rising from its own ashes.
Phoenix (Fenghuang, Fènghuáng) is a legendary sacred bird of China. Its story, characters and other symbols are found throughout East Asia over Japan and Korea. Feng is male and Huang is female. The Fenghuang is the ruler of birds, and the legends concerning it tell how birds emerged in this world.
Katsushika Hokusai (October or November 1760–May 10, 1849 was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period. In his time, he was Japan's leading expert on Chinese painting. Born in Edo (now Tokyo), Hokusai is best-known as author of the woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, c. 1831, which includes the iconic and internationally recognized print, The Great Wave off Kanagawa, created during the 1820s.
