Gather around the Christmas tree alongside twenty-four fanciful birds with this interactive pop-up Advent calendar from The Met. Each day of Advent, find and open the numbered door. Remove the bird inside and hang it on the pop-up tree by slipping the folded tab over a branch. On Christmas Day, top off the birds' nested Christmas tree with a golden star.
The calendar is based on the watercolor Avian Holiday (1953) by Adolf Dehn (American, 1895–1968). Known for his humorous satires and social commentaries on modern life, Dehn, whose work is in The Met collection, concentrated as a young artist on printmaking before focusing on watercolors in 1937.
Includes 25 perforated windows and 24 die-cut birds.
Measures: 31 1/2''W when open.
