Five Swallows Mobile
A handsome Danish-made mobile with five swallows in flight, for the kids' rooms or just about anyplace else!
The swallow is one of the loveliest birds to watch fly, and this mobile captures its beauty and grace perfectly.
Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, but the modern mobile was created in 1954 by Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe.
Flensted became known as the "Uromager", a name impossible to translate into English, which means a "maker of things mischievous and always on the move".
Today, their son Ole and his wife Aase continue the tradition, with ideas for new and original mobiles issuing regularly from their "Department of Space Research".
Flensted Mobiles are created so that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance.
Each mobile, made of thick card stock, is carefully assembled, and balanced by skilful hands.
They are packed so that they are ready to hang.
