A cardinal is a representative of a loved one who has passed. When you see one, it means they are visiting you. They usually show up when you most need them or miss them. They also make an appearance during times of celebration as well as despair to let you know they will always be with you. This is the story that is available with the purchase of the Cardinal Bowl. This sculpture makes a great sympathy gift but is also a great gift for any bird-loving person as well. Add a candle or a small floral to complete the look.
