Details
Originally designed as a limited edition sculptural piece, cast in heavy polyurethane resin, the David Shrigley Swan has been blown up, literally. This inflatable swan may be missing the graceful curves true to a classic swan, but with its hand-drawn blank expression and erect white neck, it knows exactly what it is, it is a "Ridiculous Inflatable Swan-Thing". Named lovingly by David Shrigley himself, the statuesque swan stands at 35 inches tall and comprises all that is to love about Shrigley's charismatic work, while also being pool-ready.

About The Artist
David Shrigley is a British artist who has come to prominence through his drawings, publications, and sculptural works. His drawings have a kind of throwaway beauty featuring monster children, idiots, aliens and bad parents. Full of twisted lists and exchanges, Shrigley is a Third Drawer Down favourite for his angst about modern living, his disappointments, and his cynicism.

Great look, but small

I got this for my sister here in the states for Christmas, so she had to wait until last week to use it.

I guess I didn't read the dimensions correctly because I thought it would be her size (she's 6 feet tall). She loved it when it was in the box and had a bit of a disappointed laugh when she blew it up.

She can't really sit on it properly because it just sinks under her.

She let's my 5 year-old use it and it's the perfect size for my child.

I'm a little irritated that it was $60 for something so small. I tell myself that I've paid for the beauty of it, not the size.

Hilarious but horrendously tiny

Don’t be fooled. You cannot sit on this beautiful creation. It’s a good size for babies maybe, but small babies.

We agree that there's bit of an art and sometimes a wrestle to sitting on the ridiculous inflatable swan-thing but that's part of the fun! We appreciate your feedback though and it has been passed onto our product team!
