Cardinals are widely believed to be messengers from above, the embodiment of loved ones who have gone before us. Now, the comfort they bring in times of loss are celebrated in this radiant Messenger from Heaven Ornament, showcasing the exquisite artwork of acclaimed artist James Hautman in a limited-edition first ever exclusively from The Bradford Exchange. One look at this masterfully handcrafted, illuminated Christmas tree ornament and you're sure to be captivated by its elegant opulence.
Superbly crafted of hand-blown glass with a soft sky-colored glaze, it shimmers with raised-relief swirls of golden glitter and curling leaves, perfectly framing Mr. Hautman's boldly colored, serenely peaceful image of a cardinal on a pine branch. In the center is a comforting sentiment in scrolling golden calligraphy. A golden fabric bow adorns the top. Best of all, with the flip of a switch LED lighting inside the ornament sets it aglow, dancing against a unique inner glitter finish. For yourself or as a thoughtful gift, this beautiful cardinal collectible is sure to be treasured for the message of enduring love it brings. It even arrives in a custom-made presentation box with a thoughtful poem card.
