In Western culture the White Stork is a symbol of childbirth and in Victorian times the details of human reproduction were difficult to approach, especially in reply to a younger child's query of Where did I come from? The stork brought you to us was the tactic used. This habit was derived from the once popular superstition that storks were the harbingers of happiness and prosperity, and possibly from the habit of some storks of nesting atop chimneys, down which the new baby could be imagined as entering the house! This stock bird is sculpted in Serpentine.
