This next pair of owls is meant to depict two Little Owl (Athene noctua) chicks. The name 'Little Owl' is actually the accepted common name of this species, not just a cute way to describe them, although they are very cute!
|I hope I got across how cute these little guys really are.|

|And here is the other Little Owl Chick....|
|And again from another angle.|
I titled the sculpture 'Vigilance' since they are both obviously looking at something far off. What do you thing that something is? Something good, or malevolent?

I really like this photo angle, showing the space between the two.
When I first conceived of this piece I thought of it as actually three little owls on a wall in window boxes. As it came closer to the show, and as I was working with them, I liked the dynamic of just two who were watching something from far off, instead of three. This photo below shows how I have them displayed in the gallery. The lighting is not the best there for photographs, but you get the idea.
