Part of my collection, the owls featured in the photos below are some of my favourites.
These two little blue owls seem to be the perfect companions and were both made in India. Cast in brass and coloured with oxides, their features have been etched into the metal. The beak and eyes on the smaller owl have been rubbed back to reveal the brass colour.

Cast in brass, the taller owl – with his intelligent eyes and strong claws – was made by a local artist in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales. The fine detail of its feathers and face make a very lifelike figurine. Beside him is an enameled owl, made in Italy from a heavy cast metal. The delicate colours accentuate the owl’s features, and I like the way these two owls seem to be looking at each other.
