The Frida Kahlo Flying Mobile is perfectly balanced for the most graceful movement. Pull and release the bottom string and watch her fly! Each mobile is constructed of medium-density fiberboard, hand-painted with non-toxic acrylic paint, and decorated with dyed tagua nuts.
This whimsical flyer is handcrafted by a woman-owned business in Colombia using fair trade practices. The company's founder/owner, Karen Torres, is a Chicago native, born to Colombian immigrants. She's had a lifelong desire to learn about her Colombian heritage, especially the indigenous half of her cultural heritage. Her indigenous ancestors were most likely Muysca, from present-day Boyacá. While history books claim the Muysca are extinct, there is a fervent reclaiming and reconstruction of Muysca culture & knowledge in and around Bogota. Thus, Karen is committed to working with indigenous artisans and ancestral techniques whenever possible and supports projects that preserve the rich ethnic history and art of Colombia’s indigenous peoples.
Best enjoyed indoors in any room of the house. If hung outside, keep dry.
