Wax Seal Charm Necklace - I Do It For My Family - Live and die for those we love

Pictured is a mother pelican dashing her chest to feed her two babies, surrounded by the caption "Tout Pour les Minne" which translates to "I do it for mine" or "I do it for my family".

Self-sacrifice and charitable nature; When feeding her young ("in her piety"), symbolizes the duties of a parent or parental love. A mother feeding her little baby pelicans is rooted in an ancient legend which preceded Christianity. The legend was that in time of famine, the mother pelican wounded herself, striking her breast with the beak to feed her young with her blood to prevent starvation. Another version of the legend was that the mother fed her dying young with her blood to revive them from death, but in turn lost her own life.
