The movement of this mobile is fascinating. The spiral rotates very gradually creating new shapes out of itself and giving different views of each piece hanging from it. The hanging pieces rotate at different paces, creating different relationships with one another--the ones at the bottom (the biplane and cloud) rotate quickly, while the rocket ship and saturn rotate at a slower rate, and at the top is the nearly stationary star. I have it hanging in the living room right now and my friends and I get a lot of enjoyment out of watching it's elegantly gradual movements.

The mobile was formed using the needle-felting process in which you stab loose wool repeatedly with a barbed needle until in mattes together into solid felt. Details and colors are then added in the same manner. This is a labor-intensive process, so hours of loving work went into making all of its pieces. There is a wire running down the center of the spiral to give it form. The pieces are hanging from double strands of thread. At the top is a wire loop with a very long string attached, so you can hang it from a high ceiling if necessary.

It measures approximately 30" from the top of the felted spiral to the cloud, and 15" across. Saturn is 5" across, the plane and cloud are 5 1/2" across, the rocket ship is 6" tall, and the star is 3 1/2" tall.

It is certain to amuse your child and impress your friends!
