There is an expression—the ‘jizz’ of birds—that indefinable essence of the bird within. In this set of three limited edition bronze barn owls sculptor Michael Simpson has captured it here.
Created in a series of three limited editions, these are truly owls of the countryside, flying, swooping, landing; their character is all there, as well as their vitality. What happens next is imagined by the viewer, almost—but not quite—seen. That is the inherent magic of these stunning bronzes, which, despite their smaller stature, are cast in the manner of any major piece.
In a limited edition of 250, these lovely bronze, Barn Owls, will be appreciated by all who love owls in particular, as well as wildlife and art in general. Each bronze is 90mm (3 1/2in) tall, weighs 80 grams, and will enhance any mantelpiece, side table or desk.
