This life-sized sculpture depicts the ethereal beauty of a barn owl high in the rafters. It is modeled after an owl I met at the Connecticut Audubon Society named Millie. Millie is a soft and gentle soul, and this piece captures her softness.

It is designed to be mounted on the wall, at or above eye level. The owl is carved of tupelo, the beam is carved of northern white cedar, and all are painted with acrylics. It placed second in the Birds of Prey Category, Advanced Division at the 2015 Ward World Carving Championships in Ocean City, MD.  It is in a private collection.
