Owl Book Sculpture by wetcanvas Owl Book Sculpture by wetcanvas
So this has been in the back of my mind for quite a while now. I have a bit of a fascination with owls and wanted to try to create one. The book used was a bird watching manual. I didn't think it would end up being so large, but she had a mind of her own. The wing span is about 40". Each feather has been individually cut and applied. The body feathers are made from migratory maps, the wings, head, and tail feathers are made from the bird identification illustrations. There is a wire coming from the crown of the head to hang her up. I think I spent about 10 hours working, not so sure, it's hard to keep track. I'm going to try to send her a local library for a fundraising event they've invited me to participate in. I'm not sure how that will go because this really isn't my typical work. Fingers crossed they'll like her as much as I do and she'll get a lot of bids for them.
