In Chinese culture, the phoenix was originally believed to be two separate birds, a male and female, feng and huang. They were thought to represent the opposite yet complementary forces of Yin and Yang. However, over time the birds morphed into a single female phoenix, who then became associated with the male Chinese dragon. In the healing practice of feng shui, placing statues of a dragon and phoenix in the bedroom is believed to bring good fortune to a marriage.
