textile of needlework and crochet bird

Birds have been incorporated into art and folk art symbolize freedom, spirituality, and mortality. This charming late 19th/early 20th century textile featuring a red-breasted robin sitting on a tree branch with green foliage and red and pink flowers. The border has crocheted bands of coral, pink, khaki, brown, red, cream, and blue. There is a blue wool hanging loop.  It is backed in brown cotton in a very unusual pattern.  Created by an expert needleworker and in excellent condition.  Dimensions:  4.25" x 4.25".

The Robin, the quintessential early bird, is known for its end-of-winter appearance, cheery songs, and red/orange-colored breast. While a robin is associated with new growth, ancient Europeans considered the robin to be a symbol of divine sacrifice and rebirth.
