Blue Heron Mobile
This mobile has wonderfully balanced aerodynamics for graceful movement. To fly, the heron only needs a gentle pull and release of the bottom string.
Decorated with dyed tagua nuts
27 inches in wingspan
Hand-crafted in small batches by a woman-owned business that employs single moms and internally displaced Afro-Colombians. According to the fair-trade gallery that distributes the mobiles, painting the wings and bodies require great skill and years of experience. Only two artisans have mastered the ability to paint wings. The small company is owned by Isabel, out of Colombia.
