In past centuries, children were often told that storks delivered babies. Why do we associate storks with newly born babies? Storks have been revered in Europe since the middle Ages. Their association with babies originates many centuries ago in legend and lore native to northern Germany. One legend tells us that the souls of unborn children live in watery areas such as marshes, wells, springs and ponds. Since storks often visit these places, they were believed to fetch babies’ souls and deliver them to their parents. The background is based on early nineteenth century handmade lace. This decorative tile will last long after other welcoming gifts are forgotten.
