In addition to the rug, for serious art collector's, they are also selling this wonderful original Roy Lichtenstein porcelain and cast resin mobile sculpture in a limited edition of 125.
With Landscape Mobile, Roy Lichstenstein has designed a beautiful "art system" as a table centerpiece. Invoking Alexander Calder's standing mobiles, Lichtenstein termed this piece a "stabile". It is in fact a non-moving object representing a tall tree set in a green basin intended to be filled with flowers. To create a sense of moveable, balancing parts, Lichtenstein added an abstracted background of clouds, rain and a bright yellow sun. This porcelain and cast resin stabile can be viewed from all four sides, and its thin profile makes it an ideal and unobstrusive centerpiece.
Manufactured by Bernardaud in Limoges, France. The edition of 125 is individually signed and numbered.
