Phoenix by Doris Bühler
Doris Bühler talking about her work: "As a visual artist, I am principally interested in the human being itself."
"The human body in its power and beauty is what so captivates and occupies me. Through it, I always attempt to draw out nature's deepest mysteries and express them in my work. Since the flooding of the Nile was always followed first by the appearance of birds, the Egyptians made a connection between Phoenix and Osiris, responsible for annual renewal of nature. The 'firebird' symbolises eternal life, resurrection and life after death."
