A very special Christmas decoration engraved with the constellation of Cygnus the Swan. Made in the UK in two gorgeous metallic finishes
Dreaming of a star filled Christmas? Adding Christmas touches to our home throughout December makes us very happy indeed. These constellation inspired Christmas decorations have a beautiful festive feel but are not explicitly Christmassy so could stay out all year round if you like. Hang on table centres, fireplaces, door knobs, kitchen cupboards and of course Christmas trees.
Cygnus (the swan) had many identities; however Cygnus was most likely Zeus in disguise. Leda (the wife of the Spartan king, Tyndareus, and the mother of the Gemini and Helen of Troy) had unrivaled beauty. Leda was so beautiful that Zeus could not resist her. Zeus knew that as himself he would not be able to win the love of Leda. Instead he took the form of a beautiful swan and eventually won her love.
Our Cygnus Swan Christmas decoration is made from poplar wood with a silver or bronze metallic surface applied to the front. The constellation pattern is engraved in the metallic surface.
