€ 80.00 – € 90.00
Handcrafted hanger from oak wood and iron metal hooks that resembles in form a pair of Pintails (dabbling ducks). Available in two options, a simple version for hanging clothes and one with a lower bar for folded clothes and with two shoulder handcrafted notches for various garments with straps. The double “toe” hook complicates the hanging of that object, and vice versa, for example in a closet just for those who are unaware of the puzzle solution. Their use is aimed at a hotel room, an office desk or public spaces where the use of hangers is desirable with a more stable and seemingly permanent solution. These hangers under certain conditions prevent people from removing them from a rail as they remained in a puzzling way fixed on them.

The process of hanging is a central idea of a whole family of three figures: Captain, Cygnus & Pintail. This family of hangers makes hooking and unhooking an interesting challenge. The two hooks face each other, leaving the space between for a pole to pass through. The metallic hooks are the main feature of this design and are carved by laser. Facing each other they are bonded by two pieces of wood. This unity (fusion) of four pieces; two of wood and two of metal, resembles two opposing hangers which are fused together; two hangers sitting in different directions; defying you to solve the mystery of how to hook and unhook them.
The pintail is a duck with wide geographic distribution that breeds in the northern areas of Europe, Asia and North America. It is migratory and winters south of its breeding range to the equator. Both sexes have blue-grey bills and grey legs and feet. The drake is more striking, having a thin white stripe running from the back of its chocolate in colour head down its neck to its mostly white undercarriage. In addition, the drake has attractive grey, brown, and black patterning on its back and sides. Finally, the hen’s plumage is more subtle and subdued, with drab brown feathers similar to those of other female dabbling ducks.
