Three painted woodcarvings: a male Northern Cardinal, a female Northern Cardinal, and an evergreen tree. They sit on a wooden surface against a pale background, with the male in front and the tree in back, overlapping. The birds are ornaments: they have small brass loops on their backs through which a cord could be threaded. The tree is a somewhat layered cone in dark green with some white and glitter on some of the ridges of its branches.
