The european goldfinch is the ideal Christmas bird, for a myth tells that he has pulled a thorn from the crown of thorns of Jesus as he was hanging on the cross. In this way it received his blood-red drawing on the head. The goldfinch is the bird of salvation, he brings healing and is often depicted in mediaeval Marian images. With the golden metal clip you can easily fix it on a twig. Altogether with his feather it is about 5.7" (14,5cm) long, the vitreous body alone measures about 3.1" (8cm).
