**Sam Qiatsuk SIGNATURE Owl carving
Masterpiece Carving! Museum quality Sculpture!
I never tire of Sam Qiatsuk's energetic owls.
His owls are typically positioned with their long wings held vertically over their head.
Are they landing OR are they about to take flight?
OR are they in a perpetual state of surprise?
The large white inlaid eyes and the bird's beak dominate Ready for Take Off's face.
I love this owl's incredibly strong legs, flexed at the knee as it gets ready for take off.
And of course, you have to admire his sturdy exaggerated feet.
To me, it seems like our owl is crouching with his wings held high waiting for the perfect gust of wind to pull him up and send him soaring!!!
His black colour amplifies every angle of this magnificent carving.
