Snake Metal Wall Sculpture by Alexander Girard
Vitra Design, Germany

Add instant style to your wall with Vitra's Magic Snake, a modernist wall sculpture created by Alexander Girard in 1968. Perfect for hanging on a wall, Girard's Magic Snake depicts perhaps Kundalini rising; the raw, static energy of Love that supports all life. Fashioned from white/black/blue powder coated steel; Magic Snake comes equipped with two keyholes so it can easily be hung on your wall with a minimum of effort.

First debuted at HemisFair '68 – the official World's Fair held in San Antonio, Texas – Alexander Girard's magic snake motif was originally designed in 1966. This year, it’s reissued by Swiss brand Vitra. Back in the ‘60s, the snake appeared as a decorative element on the facade of the 'Magic of a People' pavilion and in the accompanying exhibition catalogue. It’s crafted from robust metal and has a colourful powder-coated finish.

Screws or anchors are not provided.
