I love birds and I love Charles and Ray Eames. Apparently, they loved birds too. Here's a photo of their living room.
In the foreground is a primitive-ish sculpture of a crow-like bird. The Eameses used that bird sculpture as a prop in a lot of their photo shoots. All reports report that it was a treasured object. It was a carving they brought back from Appalachia during one of their many excursions around the world.
Vitra has made a reproduction of the Eames bird and now you can have one of your very own.
Even at $210 I think it's pretty darn cool.
