Hummingbirds are only found in the western hemisphere and so are absent from traditional stories and myths of the rest of the world. However, there is a rich supply of stories about these tiny birds in Native American mythology. One story tells of an ancient time when people lived in an underground world of darkness. They send a hummingbird up to look for light. High above them the little bird found a path to the sunlit world where people now live. This Hanging Hummingbird is plasma cut out of steel, welded together, lovingly bent into its hummy shape, then soaked in a super secret “rusty juice”. Finally, several coats of Lacquer to seal in the goodness. Hanger not included.
