About the itemThe symbolism of the wren dates back as far as the celts. A sacred bird, the wren was revered by the Celts as the king of all birds. According to legend, the wren flew further than the eagle in a race to the sun. This gave the wren a special place in the traditional role of birds as messengers of the gods and the wren is particularly associated with the god of thunder.Some species forage in dark crevices, and the name comes from "cave-dweller", and Celtic meanings of this little bird begin with observations in raising their young. Both male and female wrens take part in caring for their young and this is symbolic of sharing tasks within the home. It's also a reminder to not getting stuck in gender roles, and approach the "traditional" from a fresh, innovative angle.The wren is an active little bird, and so its symbolic Celtic meanings include activity, vibrancy, alertness and efficiency. The wren is rarely seen resting on her laurels. The Celts honored that fastidiousness, and took the lesson of making progress each day to heart in their own lives.Furthermore, the wren is quite sociable. She reminds us to keep a happy heart and be kind to others.Our sterling silver wren disc is a casting from an engraved Victorian pendant, and has a načve charm and we think, a tendency to make you smile.
