The design of this series of modern handcrafted kinetic sculptures has roots in the traditional German Christmas decoration, Weihnachtspyramide or Christmas Pyramid.
These spinning pyramids were originally made of wood in the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountain) region of Germany; a region where the artist once lived. They were usually constructed with 4 to 8 sides and featured hand-carved holiday scenes.
Christmas Pyramids are still very popular and are actually used in many other celebrations. As with the original pieces, our Uplifting Mobiles achieve the spinning motion from rising heat from candles placed below.
These kinetic sculptures are available in four sizes with clear glass domes--each meticulously handcrafted by the artist. The X-small size is also available with a gold dome.
