This Simple Graphic Mobile is Something to Crow About

I have an affinity for crows. Many years ago, 20 or more, a man told me a story about crows counting huntsmen as they exited a barn. In his delightful tale he explained that yes, crows can count, but only up to three, motioning with his fingers the three front toes of their claws. While Christian Flensted’s Kites Mobile reminds me of crow feathers, not toes, it’s as engaging as my friend’s story. Art rather than craft.

Flensted Kites mobile, $62, from Kemper Museum of Art.
