Regarding this owl... It is one of the nicest owls I have ever seen in my life. It is as simple as that! Check out the movement, the atomic proportions, the subtleties in movement and stance.
To add to its brilliance, the beautiful yellowish inlaid eyes completely punctuates this piece with incredible bravado and panache! This is Manasie's trademark.
This is nothing short of an investment.
This is your chance to own a masterpiece the top artist in the world.
