Copper, Brass, Malachite

Ascending Cinder is a dedication to the civilizations of the Aztecs, Mayans, and Egyptians. The phoenix was an emblem of the sun, and the legend states that the actual bird never really existed in the first place... Evolution of thought turned a hieroglyph into folklore. The body was symbolic of the fiery orb in the sky, and the feathers, its rays. To die every night, and to rise again in the morning fresh and new. Malachite was, in the Renaissance, thought to protect one from the evil eye. On today's terms, it is believed to harbor new beginnings.
