Since our cave days, we humans have hung things on our walls—drawings, paintings, pictures, carpets, tapestries, elk heads, plates, posters, etc.
In the mid-20th Century, a modern, more-or-less abstract “wall decor” emerged. These items were typically made of wood, wire, ceramic, or metals, or some combination thereof. They good-naturedly tipped their hats to tradition even while sometimes poking fun at it. The tall slim one here has a candle holder, for crying out loud.
Like wall hangings of old, they ran the gamut of sizes from postcard-size art to the likes of the ceramic and wire number you see here at the top, which is 5-1/2 inches deep and nearly five feet wide.
