Great Horned Owl

Donated to the 2011 Autumn Auction by Peter ENGEL. Auction date: 30 October 2011

The Great Horned Owl is dedicated to my father, a great bird lover.  The mystery of owls and other nocturnal birds has always appealed to me.  In this model I have tried to capture something of this great bird’s mythical quality by focusing on simple forms and clean lines.  The auctioned model will be about 6″ tall; for transportation purposes, its presentation may differ from what is shown in the photograph.
