"Armadillo" is a Spanish word meaning little armored one. They are the only mammals that have bony plates that cover their back, head, legs, and tail. Since they can roll into a ball to defend themselves, they symbolize protection and setting boundaries.

Each figurative glass ornament produced by Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's.
Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds made exclusively for Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
