Masterpiece Sculpture! Museum quality Piece!
Provenance (April 5th, 2019): Manasie bought this gorgeous white alabaster stone a few months ago. With it, he carved these extraordinary white mother cub bears, alongside some exquisite white owls. This is all but the last of this beautiful stone. He had just enough to carve out another two beautiful white chick owls for me. The stone is so divine! These will be his last two white owls for a while.
Rarely does Manasie carve small owls. He has used the same gorgeous white stone that he uses for his larger owls. This enchanting owl is an opportunity to own one of Manasie's enchanting owls but at a lower price point.
Manasie has carved the perfect small Owl. The rich white stone bestows serenity and peace to the piece.

I spoke to Manasie and he told me that he is improving the technique he uses to form his carvings’ inlayed eyes.
Instead of using one stone for the inlay, he is now able to use overlapping stones which creates a black border around the eye. Although this is more difficult, it creates more depth and complexity to the eye. This owl is the first piece in which he has used this process and he plans to continue using this technique.
Manasie Akpaliapik has had innumerable prestigious commissions through out his long and illustrious career, culminating in his presentation to the National Art Museum of Canada.
The brilliance of this Owl, resides in the contrast between the yellow inlaid eyes and the brilliant white marble of the body.
This is Manasie’s trademark; his ability to fashion this ocular miracle with bravado and panache.
Pure's body is sculpted to create subtle movement.
Manasie's sculptures are true investment pieces.
Guaranteed that you will double your financial efforts in less than 10 years.
Do not hesitate.
Pure is ready to fly home with you.
He will bring you everlasting joy.
