This charming and affable Owl
has been carved out of antler by Ray Tsalate. Its features have been finely incised with artfully burnt out feather and wing detailing throughout. Its eyes are delicately inlaid with gold lip shell eyes and pen shell pupils. Its nose is of inlaid abalone shell and its claws are inlaid with microscopic pen shell cabochons. This superb carving is about 1 5/8" wide and 2" tall.
