Collectible ornament celebrating the founding of Big Bend National Park.
Through the hardest days of the Depression and WWII, the people and state of Texas worked together to create a National Park. From kindergartners to cattle barons, Texans contributed what they could to a fund to purchase land in one of the most remote but spectacularly scenic regions of their state. The deed to Big Bend was presented as Texas' gift to the nation on June 6, 1944.
This festive ornament features an artistic impression of the view from Hot Springs Canyon toward the Chisos Mountains, complete with ocotillos, Big Bend bluebonnets, and other favorite flora and fauna. Comes with a satin ribbon for hanging.
3.5" x 3.5" porcelain, printed in full color in the USA.
