Camphor Window #3

Were it not for the central phoenix medallion which is exquisitely carved, this would be a relatively simple window. However the phoenix (symbolizing peace) stands out so clearly that additional detailed carvings could detract from the window's central message. According to legend, the phoenix only arrives during times of peace. Some of the diagonal stripes through the squares have been replaced.
