This offering is sold.

Kevin Chapman has given this burrowing Owl a mystical feeling through his creative use of the varied colors found in this specimen of Cerrillos turquoise. Kevin inlaid one eye with jet which is surrounded by the attractive natural occurring light blue-green turquoise, while the other eye is of inlaid jet and mother of pearl. With beautifully incised wings, tail, and talons, the carving measures about 2 1/2" long, 1 1/4" tall, and 1 5/8" wide.
