Original alabaster owl carving by a Canadian artist. Fantasy designed ice-like white stone small sculpture on a round shape silky smooth polished black slate base
This recently finished small sculpture was carved from Spanish-origin white alabaster stone. Minimalist style figurine, yet detailed enough to represent the character of the owl. Carved with traditional hand tools, polished with standard water base sandpapers up to 2000 grit smoothness and shine. Sealed and buffed with natural nontoxic bee wax. Stands on a round shape locally collected black Slate stone base, that is polished as well, and has a silky smooth touch.
6″ x 2.75″ x 2.75″ 15 x 7 x 7 cm 0.723 kg.
It’s an original brand new alabaster owl carving, signed and dated on the base. I can personalize it, if meant for a gift item, by carving or engraving a name, business logo, or a short message to the base stone.
Alabaster is a relatively soft stone, measures 2-2.5 on the hardness scale of 1-10. Easily carvable with basic hand tools and polished with standard sandpapers. It depends on where the stone prospected, but some specimens contain other colors like blue, and orange, which give the inspiration to carve various art sculptures.
