Condition: This sculpture is in perfect condition. Bronze dimensions with marble base: height 12 \"x width 10\".Dimensions of marble: diameter 5. This sculpture of this medium-sized owl is frightening but surprisingly beautiful with its fully deployed owl wings, as it has just landed on this broken tree trunk. The owl has large eyes facing down, a falcon-shaped beak and a flat face; and its well-visible circle of feathers is magnificent. Most birds of prey have eyes on the sides of their heads, but the stereoscopic nature of the owl's forward-facing eyes allows for a greater perception of the depth required for low-light hunting. Although owls have binocular vision. Their big eyes are fixed in their orbits - like those of other birds - so they have to turn their heads to change their eyes.
Owls can rotate their heads and necks up to 270 degrees in both directions. As owls are hypermetropic, they are unable to see clearly anything within inches of their eyes. Captured prey can be felt by owls using feather filo-feathers - small hair-like feathers on the beak and paws that act as \"palpers.\" Their vision from afar, especially in low light, is exceptionally good. The owl was cast using the archaic method of cast iron with lost wax and tinged with a brown patina finish for perpetuation.The bronze sculpture rests on a black marble base and is signed milo.
