Supreme Horned Owl

By Troy Sice

Animal: Owl, Material: Antler
This offering is sold.
Flawlessly carved from antler, a museum-quality horned Owl wears traditional dress that's masterfully inlaid with exquisite materials such as turquoise, coral, lapis, pipestone, serpentine and malachite. Layered plumage, facial feathers and the soles of the antler are burnt out for a great contrasting effect. Knowledgable eyes are of inlaid pen shell in gold lip shell, plus a double inlaid necklace of red coral, lapis, turquoise and serpentine adorns this approximate 3 1/2" tall, 2 1/2" wide and 1 3/4" deep supreme raptor. It can rest on either foot too, a testament to the incredible carving skills of Troy Sice.
