Floating the Skies Balloon | Available in rainbow, red, blue, pink and yellow |
13 cm x 8.50 cm | 0.05kg |
Iconic and inspiring helium filled balloons were one of aviation’s first successes. Since 1783, balloons have traveled the skies, often in unintended directions. The largest model to date comes complete with a rattan basket hanging from hand-knotted netting and wood toggles. The large balloon carries sand bags at the ready for release as ballast.
Its not like you’ll call ahead for tea and scones. Arrival time, even arrival place is unpredictable at best. But the feel… viewing the earth, leaning on the basket’s rim, like a silent movie, floating the sky. A diminutive feeling, hanging from an enormous fabric balloon filled with helium. A Zen-like mood soon kicks in; watch the rolling hills, view snow in the mountains far away… your shadow skimming the hilltops, life down there stops to watch you glide.
