This quirky wooden owl, hand made and hand painted, has long jointed legs so he can sit on a ledge, shelf or any flat surface. His legs and wings have metal pins at each side so they move freely. He's very tall, standing 18 inches flat-footed (if he could stand on his own) and 12 inches tall sitting down with his legs projecting 9 inches in front of him. He takes up about 7 inches of space horizontally, wingtip to wingtip and weighs just under 2 pounds. His wings are 6 inches long and painted on both inner and outer surfaces. The hand applied colors are black, brown, palest green, chrome yellow and metallic gold highlighting. There's a purple ring around each iris in his large protruding eyes. The designs are very detailed on both front and back, with a cheerful folk art effect. There are no breaks or other damage, just some minor wear here and there to the paint.
We were told this articulated fellow was made in Bali, but it is unmarked. We just know he makes us smile every time we see him.
