This offering is sold.
This Owl knows what is going on. Owls teach us that the willingness and courage to transform the unknown in ourselves into the known is a true source of wisdom. Robert Michael Weahkee carved this night raptor from shed antler. Using a burn out technique he gave the wings and face nice detail. The eyes are inlaid turquoise with drilled centers that are filled with jet paste. A beautiful offering necklace honors the spirit of the owl with pen shell heishe, lapis and turquoise beads. This carving measures about 5" tall, 2" wide and 1 1/4" deep.
