ITEM #: 16073 Pelican Bird Ornament by Old World Christmas
From Old World Christmas. The Pelican is a symbol of
Jesus per an ancient legend.
During a famine, the Pelican
cared so dearly for her young
that she chose to give them
her own blood to prevent
starvation, but in turn lost
her own life. The Pelican is a
symbol of self-sacrifice and is
used in heraldry. With accurate form and a bright orange bill, this Pelican ornament is beautifully made, with wonderful glittered accents on the feather textured wings, and a beachy, sand-like base underneath.
