Serpentine Bird, Barn Owl by Enrike Leekya

$ 75.00

A striking barn owl carved from a piece of cream and gray spotted/veined serpentine by Enrike Leekya. Enrike created an outstanding face utilizing a dark colored pin shell. He inlaid turquoise eyes and then incised lines all around them. The symbolism of barn owls is directly related to their character and how they live their lives. They like to remain hidden and observe their surroundings calmly, leading them to become symbols of wisdom, mystique, silence, and listening. The Zuni believe the owl can see what others can not - they assist in helping to root out deception and they can get to the essence of true wisdom.
Artist: Enrike Leekya (signed)
