Bighorn Sheep Ornament
The Story BehindThis animal is very sure-footed and agile in climbing steep mountain terrain. Found in western North America, males may engage in head-butting battles for domain. Native folklore tells of a brave mountain sheep, Na-gah, who climbed the highest peak and became the fixed and steadfast North Star.
Each glass ornament is mouth-blown into finely carved molds
A solution of hot liquid silver is added for exceptional color and vibrance
Ornaments are then hand-painted and hand-glittered for a fine finish
A rememberance of trip to the Colorado National Monument
I quickly found three ornaments to purchase, received free shipping and everything arrived carefully wrapped to prevent breakage during shipping. The bighorn ornament is a nice size and color.
