Eames House Bird

Updated: Sorry that I forgot to resize the image in the original post. This should look better!

Quoted from MCA Store:
"Charles and Ray Eames augmented the interior “collage” of the Eames House with numerous objects brought back from their extensive travels. The figure of a black wooden bird — evidently one of their most prized objects of American folk art — has stood in the centre of their living room for over fifty years. Seen as an accessory in many of the Eameses’ photographs, the bird figure is from the Appalachian mountain region of the eastern United States. Based on the original artefact and in cooperation with the Eames Family. Solid alder, black lacquer finish, steel wire. 10.8 x 3.5 x 11 inches"

I WILL own one someday. For $200, unfortunately it won't be today. The simplicity is so beautiful.
