Whimsical Whirligigs

These magical whirligigs are from the mind of one creator, Dr. Ben Thal of Edmonds, WA.

They dip and spin and strain and stomp, these curious creations.  What they all have in common is their Edmonds, Wash. creator.

Ben Thal is a retired surgeon whose deft touch has been bringing life to whirligigs of wood and wire for more than 25 years.  He is a Dr. Frankenstein, but with a sense of humor.  On YouTube, he's whirligiger32.

He's building on a long tradition and taking it in a whole new direction.  Some of his whimsical whirligigs take months to create, and they've been displayed from coast-to-coast.

Want one? Too bad. They're not for sale.

Here they were born, and here they will stay, with the man who gave them life.
