Magpie of High Social Intelligence

By Calvert Bowannie

This offering is sold.
This highly intelligent magpie has been carved by Calvert Bowannie from shiny black marble with overlaid turquoise wing accents, plus turquoise inlaid eyes. Magpies represent an openness to the process of change, revitalization and nourishment for the human spirit.  Magpies are one of the most intelligent of all birds and have a complex social hierarchy. Their seemingly black feathers are actually iridescent blue/green in the sunlight. This sleek and beautiful carving is about 2 1/8" long, 1" wide and 3/4" tall.
