Burt Awelagte's skillfully carved this Owl
from a fabulous specimen of #8 Mine turquoise. The raptor has a smoothly sculpted body and a finely carved beak and lovely eyes of inlaid lapis lazuli. The patterns and colors displayed in the #8 Mine turquoise Burt selected for this carving add detail, dimension, and mystery to the depiction of this magnificent raptor. It is signed by the artist and measures slightly over 2" long and almost 2 3/4" tall.
