“Woolworth Cow” Eats Wire Grass (Feb, 1931)
“Woolworth Cow” Eats Wire Grass
ALEXANDER CALDER, New York sculptor and artist, recently gave an exhibition of his work at the Fifty-sixth Street Galleries. Although many fine works of art were shown, the amusing toy novelties of this versatile craftsman attracted the largest share of attention.
Using scraps that may be picked up around any home and every day articles purchased from the five and ten cents stores, Calder constructed many startling novelties. The “Wool-worth Cow” shown here was made of a wooden darning egg, a door bumper, coat hangers, bottle tips, rubber tips and wire.
