Charles and Ray Eames designed the interior of the Eames House with numerous objects brought back from their extensive travels. The figure of a black wooden bird is evidently one of their most prized objects of American folk art, as it stood in the centre of their living room for over fifty years. The bird figure originates from the Appalachian mountain region of the eastern United States, and can be seen as an accessory in many of the Eames' photographs.
