Nocturnal Grace

Thomas Roos's avatar Thomas Roos

This is a life size wood carving of a great horned owl. It is made of basswood with the feathers carved into it and wood burned for more detail. The carving was then painted. It has taken around 130 hours to make. I have dedicated it to my late Grandmother, Grace Cartwright, who loved owls and encouraged my love for nature at the cottage in Traverse City.
