Very fun ladybug fetish Hand Carved from apple coral and black marble with turquoise inlaid eyes. According to legend, European crops during the Middle Ages were plagued by pests. Farmers began praying to the Blessed Lady, the Virgin Mary. Soon, the farmers started seeing beneficial ladybugs in their fields, and the crops were miraculously saved from the pests. The farmers began calling the red and black beetles "our lady's birds" or lady beetles. Even today they are beloved because they are beneficial predators, cheerfully chomping on garden pests such as aphids. Order this "large" ladybug now and enjoy!
