This is a gorgeous and classic set of owls by world renown Joanasie Manning. He is internationally famous for his owls like these ones.
Mother owl has spread her wings to protect the young. The eyes made from caribou antler blend exquisitely with the serpentine stone. The carving is polished to a mirror shine with beautiful proportions and lines throughout.
Joanasie Manning (1967- )
Joanassie began carving at the age of twenty. His grandfather, the renowned carver Osuitok Ipeelee, was a great influence on his work. After carving sporadically for a number of years, Joanassie is now working more consistently. He has evolved a personal style that is becoming stronger and more confident.*
