Modgy Luminary Lanterns set the mood in any space with the addition of water and water-activated, floating LED candles. These durable, plastic luminaries feature beautiful and are suitable for indoor/outdoor use. In the 19th century, naturalist/painter John J. Audubon sounded the alarm about vanishing nature. He noted in 1816, “Our Parakeets are very rapidly diminishing where 25 years ago they were plentiful, scarcely any are now to be seen.” The Carolina Parakeet - the only parrot native to the U.S. - became extinct in 1920. The species lives on in Audubon’s brilliant watercolor, as a pandemonium of parakeets jostle together in harmony. They remind us to appreciate and cherish our fragile ecosystem. John J.
