The Pelican in Christian Symbolism

Description of Coloring Page: A very old Christian symbol; pelicans will supposedly "bleed" themselves to feed their young if food cannot be found. Read more here . . . For this reason, many paintings of crucifixions throughout Christendom and history have the nests of pelicans painted at the top of Christ's cross.

Don't forget to drag the png. or jpg into a Word Document and enlarge the image as much as possible before printing it folks. If you have a question about this coloring page, just type into the comment box located directly below this post and I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can.
