Together with his friends Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson, Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures of postwar American design. A key source of inspiration for his wide-ranging oeuvre, which primarily focused on textile design, was his passion for the folk art of South America, Asia and Eastern Europe.

The decorative Wooden Dolls, designed and made by Girard in 1953 for his own home in Santa Fe, were likewise inspired by his extensive personal collection of folk art.
