Gem Cutting Craftwork ‘Humming Bird’
The gift was presented to Chairman Kim Jong Il by the president of the Party for Free Motherland of Brazil in October Juche 99(2010).
As he witnessed the reality in the DPRK where eye-opening events took place in succession despite the tenacious moves of the imperialists to stifle the country, the leader of the Brazilian party was deeply moved by the wise leadership of Kim Jong Il, a peerless statesman and outstanding Songun commander.
He prepared the gift out of his sheer desire to warmly congratulate the Chairman as he had invariably been elected as general secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea at the Party Conference.
The gift is made of the unique gem of Brazil and represents a pair of humming birds seated on a rock.
It is said that the Brazilians regard the humming bird as a rare bird symbolizing love, friendship and freedom.
