Light green soapstone owl figurine, hand-carved small sculpture on a round shape black granite base. Recently finished new stone carving, of little abstract style wisdom reminder display. Traditionally carved by using only hand tools such as rasps and files and for polishing standard different grits sandpapers. Sealed and buffed with natural nontoxic bee wax, pinned and stone epoxy glued to a black granite stone specimen, that has feldspar flakes in it. The base stone was polished as well, also that’s where the figurine was signed and dated. I can personalize this soapstone owl figurine by adding a name or short message carving to the base stone for free of charge.
