Love’s Labour’s Lost – Act V, Scene 2 – “Then nightly sings the staring owl, Tu-whit; Tu-who, a merry note.” These are lines written on the bird of prey by none other than William Shakespeare.
Ever wondered why we are so fascinated with owls? Is it their huge eyes, swiveling head, upright stance, sharp talons or is it their nocturnal lifestyle that so captivates us? To me, owls are strikingly beautiful birds that exude enigma and fierceness. This graffiti inspired art piece is for all my owl admiring friends.
A mosaic art piece is an extremely labour intensive process. It begins with composing and designing an outline followed by manually cutting mosaic tiles and stained-glass pieces to the desired shape and size. This is then followed by pasting them on the substrate. Once done, the crevices in the piece need to be filled in and a coat of polish will give the piece the finished look.
This mosaic art piece is for sale. Size is 24” x 24”. Price is available on request.
