Product Description

Our Pelican in Her Piety Button features a figure that became widely used in Christian art to represent Christ's voluntary sacrifice. It was medieval belief that, if a pelican was unable to find enough food to feed her young, she would peck at her own breast and feed the drops of blood to her young. It is because of this belief that the pelican has long been a symbol of selflessness and charity. The symbol of the Pelican in her Piety is use in heraldry for just such a person or family. This Pelican in Her Piety Button measures 1 inch in diameter and is cast from lead free pewter. It has a shank on the back of the button to securely attach it to your garment by sewing it on. It would be great for any sewing, knitting, or costuming project.
