Black Swan Ornament

Outer Island

Black Swan Ornament


Native to Western Australia, the Black Swan has been introduced all over the world, but it’s truly the feathered O.G. to WA. Found on their state symbol, Black Swans are large and graceful with sleek black feathers.

In medieval times people thought it likelier to bump into a unicorn than a black swan. It was a symbol for the impossible. But like many discoveries over the years, we’re glad the Black Swan was proven real just like we’re glad we won’t fall off the edge of a flat earth too if we go to visit them.
