Owl Ate the Blue Moon
From Alvis: "Owl Ate the Blue Moon is the first sculpture in the Blue Moon Series, so named because this series features animals that are endangered in our world today and so are seen only once in a while. I want my art to raise awareness for endangered species of animals in this series…just as my horses are meant to raise awareness of the diminishing quantities of wild horses left to roam freely on the lands that were legally set aside for them in the 1970’s. The Blue Moon Series was also named this because once in a blue moon I will sculpt something other than a horse.
Owl Ate, is a half life-size sculpture of a Northern Spotted Owl. I love these little bird’s faces and they are an endangered species of bird too – since they prefer to live in old growth forests. Little Owl Ate has tasted something that he holds in one feathery foot."
This piece measures 12" wide by 6" deep by 9" tall.
