Blue Heron Pin
3.25″ l x 2.75″ w.
Cotton/Felt/Metal/Beads. Hand Embroidered in India.
Gliding at speeds exceeding 30 miles an hour, this tall and statuesque bird, with a wingspan of over six feet, is a symbol of beauty and grace. Striking a vicious blow to stab its prey with its bill, its spindly legs and curved s-shaped neck makes the Blue Heron, a real majestic wild bird.
