A whale of a time

Charles and Ray Eames believed in surrounding themselves with art and objects that brought them great joy. Chief among them was a huge wooden whale that measured over seven feet in length. The Eameses were exceptionally fond of this anonymous work of North American folk art, which was dubbed the Eames House Whale. It occupied a permanent place in the Eames Office and appeared in photo shoots, including in the first images of the Lounge Chair. Like its predecessor, this smaller-scale reproduction is hand-painted. It is crafted from ash wood and measures roughly 5½ feet long by 2¼ feet wide. Made in Poland.
