The Merk Family's Old World Christmas The Bald Eagle Glass Ornament 4½" #16011 - New in Box!
This wonderfully detailed and sparkly bald eagle ornament makes a perfect gift idea after seeing one in the wild or add it to any wildlife, wild bird or eagle themed Christmas tree ornaments collection. Though Alaska is very well known for their bald eagle population, they can be found throughout the US. Made of blown glass and hand-painted plus glittered accents.
For centuries it was believed that the eagle could look directly into the sun and that it was reborn by diving into a fountain. Christians adopted this symbolism, comparing the eagle looking into the sun to Christ looking at His Father and the fountain as the renewal of the soul through baptism. Today, an eagle may often be spied on the baptismal fonts in older churches.
This ornament will also stand upright on a flat surface.
4½" tall, 2½" wide, 2" deep, 1.2 ounces.
Includes Old World Christmas Gift Box
