Woodluxe: Creation by GINO TAN Name: "The Resurrection" 浴火鳳凰 Author: Gino Tan Year: 2018 Size: 24"x32 Original Material: Acrylic on Wood Description The Phoenix is the messenger of happiness in the chinese mythology. Every five hundred years, it will bear all the unhappiness and hatred in the world, and give its life by self-immolation in the raging fire - to exchange for the peace, blessings, harmony of life, beauty and happiness. It is also the belief that true after a body has suffered tremendous pain and through reincarnation, one can be reborn more beautifully with no more pain and suffering. This story and its metaphorical meaning are called "Nirvana" in the Buddhist scriptures. The meaning of this painting is to describe those who have experienced the hardship but able to regain their spirits and stand up tall again - stronger and resilient, with a happier soul. 鳳凰是人世間幸福的使者，每五百年，它就要背負著積累於人世間的所有不快和仇恨恩怨，投身於熊熊烈火中自焚，以生命和美麗的終結換取人世的祥和和幸福。同樣在肉體經受了巨大的痛苦和輪迴後它們才能得以更美好的軀體得以重生。這段故事以及它的比喻意義，在佛經中，被稱為“涅槃”。 這幅畫作的意思是形容那些經歷苦難後，能重新站起來的人稱為浴火鳳凰.
