According to North American Native tradition, the Blue Heron brings messages of self-determination and self-reliance. They represent an ability to progress and evolve. The long thin legs of the heron reflect that an individual who doesn't need great massive pillars to remain stable, but stands strong on one's own. Here the great blue heron is among wild Iris versicolor in wetlands in our new tea towel. 100% cotton, 27"x27" flour sack. Lint-free, absorbent. It makes a perfect, practical, beautiful gift.
