WHAT IS A STABILE?

ART NOTE: Some movable sculpture is known as a mobile. Maybe you have seen one hanging in a building lobby or on a stand or in an art museum.

This craft is art as a Stabile: A stabile is one kind of stationary abstract sculpture, developed by the 20th-century American artist Alexander Calder. It usually hangs or is held up on a stand or hook, but does not move! (stabe -eel)

Luke 2:14, John 9:5
