These pair of bright orange, metal edged circle pillow ends are embedded on a patterned, thick blue cover. In the circle, two phoenix are facing each other with seven chicks next to them.
The symbolism of the nine phoenixes is thought of as fecundity. A pillow decorated with two ends with nine phoenixes each was called Gu-bong-chim (nine phoenix pillow). They were particularly meant for newly wedded couples, wishing them to produce many male offspring.
