The Blue Bird or L’Oiseau Bleu is a French fairy tale, very similar to our well known Cinderella. Fiordelisa, the daughter of a wealthy king, was in love with Prince Charming. Her step-sister, Turritella, was horribly jealous that the Prince favored Fiordelisa instead of her. Along with her fairy godmother, they turned the prince into a bluebird and Fiordelisa was locked away in the castle tower. The bluebird would visit the princess, bringing her jewels and gifts. The queen soon found out and locked the bluebird away in a thorned tree. After the king’s death, the people of his kingdom turned on the queen and demanded the release of Fiordelisa. Once released, she was proclaimed the new queen and set off in search of her Prince Charming.
The bluebird is a mythical symbol often portraying happiness, prosperity, renewal, and good health. This tile represents those qualities and a story in which we all live happily ever after.
Is there anything prettier than a peacock? This vibrant, elegant, and mysterious bird is the perfect specimen of grace. In India, the peacock is treasured as the national bird. Their iridescent feathers give the illusion that they’re glowing, similar to the constellation that shares their name. They are, indeed, a pretty bird!
