Half decoration and half toy, the Wooden Dolls were originally designed for use in designer Alexander Girard’s own home. Alongside Charles and Ray Eames, Alexander Girard was one of the decisive figures in post-war American design. The focus of his broad oeuvre was on textile design, and a key source of inspiration for him was the popular art of South America, Asia and East Europe. The Wooden Dolls, which Girard created for his own home in Santa Fe and made himself, are likewise inspired by his own extensive collection of works of popular art.
