Don't ask me what it means, draw your own conclusions.
I will say, however, that the composition here is very symbolic; this pose has many triangles to represent 3 points of the birth and renewal cycle.. birth, transition, transcension (and then begin again at birth), and that I was inspired by the phoenix while drawing.
Edit: After all the critiques, I went back and made some slight changes and corrections
