Alexander Girard Wooden Cat Dolls

September 23, 2015

The multi-faceted artist, designer and architect Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures of postwar American design. A key source of inspiration for his wide-ranging oeuvre, which focused primarily on textile design, was his passion for the folk art of South America, Asia and Eastern Europe.

These decorative Wooden Cat Dolls were originally designed and made by Girard for his own home in Santa Fe. Part decorative object, part toy, the dolls consist of three parts that are held together by magnets.
