** Joanasie Manning SIGNATURE Owl carving
Masterpiece Carving! Museum quality Sculpture!
A mother protecting her babies from danger, is always an emotional event.
This sculpture provokes every one of those deep emotions.
The young bird has a look of curiosity and mischief on his face which provides some comic relief from the serious subject of the Mother-Child bond.
Joanasie Manning is a superb Master Carver. His owls are a cornerstone of my gallery.
What is it about Inuit artists and Owls?
It seems that each Owl carver has a signature piece which has become the foundation of his successful career.
When I see Joanasie's owls, these words come to mind: unfaltering, staunch, devoted, dependable.
Joanasie often sculpts a Mother owl protecting her chicks under her large spread wings or he shows us a solitary owl, squatting on the ground with folded wings and huge innocent eyes.
Safe Harbour would be a loving gift for a birth or anniversary.
