Alexander Calder Wall Hangings

If you're a fan of Alexander Calder, starting saving your pennies! We blogged awhile back about these Calder-esque mini-mobiles for the home, and now we're drooling over these wall tapestries designed by Calder himself.

Working with master craftsman weavers in Central America, Calder originally intended that these tapestries would actually be hammocks for a series of hammock stands that he had designed. However, the hammocks took on a life of their own to become their own art pieces.

Only fourteen designs were re-created and woven into two sizes and in an edition of 100. The large measures 72"x98" and costs about $6,500 at Maximo Design.
