Wind vanes have been used by humans for ages. While this object serves both an ornamental as well as a functional purpose, it was originally conceived with the purpose of being able to tell the direction of the wind, which I s quite important for the people of old to tell the weather due to the absence of weather forecasting equipment. Now that we have sophisticated equipment for such purposes, the wind vane has been relegated to more of an ornamental role and because of this, a lot of people stopped using them altogether.

Setting up a wind vane in your house will allow you to have an ornament that most probably no one else in y our community has. If you want to take the uniqueness factor up a notch however, you could have a wind vane customer made for you.

Custom made wind vanes can be quite expensive however, and looking for someone to make it for you can be quite difficult as well.
