Moblie ~ Alex Linke

Alex Linke, creator of ‘Salt Traffic’ mobile, was born on a farm in Bavaria, Germany, near the end of World War II. When he was eight years old, he found a shard of pottery near the site of an old Roman wall in his father’s field, a discovery that launched a life-long passion for collecting ancient ornaments, coins, beads, and artifacts. The ‘Salt Traffic’ mobile is a celebration of ocean life. Whales, sharks and dolphins swim and spin below the ocean’s surface. On top are sailing and cruise ships; cargo and fishing vessels; tugboats; barges and an old steam-powered paddle wheeler. A Coast Guard helicopter surveys the sea below and a lighthouse stands ready to aid ships in distress. A lone submarine plumbs the ocean depths below. The mobile’s structure consists of a bronze platform that serves as the ocean’s surface. The finest-quality stained glass is used to shape the mobile’s vessels and marine life. Small pieces of amber and fossil ivory are also employed. In a slight breeze, the mobile’s perfectly balanced components will turn slowly. Three available sizes Small: 18″ x 14″ x 22″, Medium: 25″ x 16″ x 24″, Large: 30″ x 22″ x 28.
