Ornaments from Haiti: Fish

by: 2nd Story Goods

Category: Ornaments


A Symbol of Christianity and Life Transformation

The fish is one of the earliest symbols of Christianity. Jesus told his earliest followers to be "fishers of men" and performed several miracles involving fish. The fish also evokes the story of Jonah, where a great fish miraculously saved Jonah from drowning. And Jesus himself used the story of Jonah and the fish to allude to his own resurrection. These ornaments also represent a type of resurrection: jobs coming to the people of Jubilee village in Haiti. Purchase this beautiful symbol for your tree.
