As the symbol of wisdom and knowledge, the OWL impresses us by its appearance and behavior.
I got the idea to represent this sculpture through a pure and elegant geometric element – a sphere in
which I carved out two deep eyes and I worked delicately to emboss its beak, thinking that these two parts
of the body are those that attract the attention.
In my imagination, the shape of the sphere represents the long, gloomy hooting of the OWL, to which we listen in the night, with fear.
“Nocturnal hooting... symbol of wisdom".
