Gamayun is a prophetic bird of Russian folklore. It is a symbol of wisdom and knowledge and lives on an island in the east, close to paradise. This legendary creature has the body of a bird and the head of a beautiful woman, being quite similar to the Phoenix and being immortal. The Russian folklore compares it to the three prophetic birds, joining Alkonost and Sirin.
