_Immediately what comes to mind is the oriental world of the graceful Crane bird.
As to the spirit world, the Phoenix bird symbolizes immortality and the resurrection of life after death. Only one Phoenix exists at one time, which would suggest only one Kata. The Phoenix was usually depicted as the Heron but in classic literature as a Peacock or an Eagle.
The first movement to the side could suggest the Crane bird warding of an attacker, the forward movement could indicate the flapping of the wings in an attack.
The movement at 45° suggests the Heron bird stalking it pray, close to the waters edge and the middle knuckle thrust could be deduced as the beak of the Heron bird piercing it’s pray.
From the low stance, and rising with both hands aloft, this could be the Graceful display of the Peacock bird, signifying detail, precision, colour and beauty.
And the last move is the representation of a Peacock bird, display it’s non-compliance to be approached, the Kiai (the shout for spirit) is quite daunting.
