Areaware | Bird Mobile | Duck
Some say that birds are a symbol of luck, love, healing, and a lot of other good things. Hang this wooden bird mobile, composed of graphic lines and clean shapes, in your favorite room as a reminder of all the nice things. Pull gently on the string to help your bird take flight. Take all three under your wing to create your own flock—after all, birds of a feather like to fly together.
