ITEM #: 16126 Roadrunner Ornament by Old World Christmas
From Old World Christmas. Meep Meep! Who doesn't love that sound the roadrunner makes in the cartoon where Wile E. Coyote repeatedly attempts to catch and eat the Roadunner! The Roadrunner is a long-legged ground bird that lives in the deserts of the Southwest United States. Able to fly, but preferring to run, its name came from its habit of running along the road in front of stagecoaches. The Roadrunner symbolizes mental agility and speed of thought. This Roadrunner ornament favors a more lifelike appearance as opposed to its cartoon counterpart, featuring realistic white markings and a flowering cactus plant in the background.
