This enchanting owl sits pensively, wings held close to her body, conserving her warmth. Manasie has used a soft pale yellow stone for this sculpture which is a departure from his iconic white marble owls. Also, recently Manasie has been using black stone to outline the yellow inlaid eyes of his owls. The combination of the black rimmed eyes and the soft yellow coloration of this owl makes it an extremely unique Manasie carving.The sculptures of all the Master Carvers are investment pieces.
