This horned owl is nothing short of Spectacular !! Such power packed into this carving! The deep set round eyes, the protruding horns and the raised wings are just simply amazing! The sense of flight and movement is just beautiful and speaks to the degree of difficulty in the carving. I love the graphic nature of the blue and grey tones in this owl! A beautiful color scheme. And the painting is done with such precision, that it is awe inspiring to look at. I also love the awesome geometric designs that vary throughout the piece, and how the paint design truly reflects the nature of the feathers. This owl is a great example of the work of the very talented Julia Fuentes and her husband Jose Juan. Julia is part of the world renowned Fuentes Family, including Epifanio Fuentes, Zeny Fuentes and Efrain Fuentes. Julia Fuentes actually used to do the painting on her brother Zeny's pieces, until branching out on her own just a few years ago. In my opinion, Julia has surpassed her brothers in her talent in the painting of these wood carvings. Julia actually studied at Bellas Artes... a famous art institution in Mexico! Wow! We were amazed at the beauty of her pieces when we first saw them, and are so excited to be able to share them with the world. They never disappoint, and always seem to increase in beauty and detail. The shading technique that she uses in her artistry is just amazing. One of the most incredible aspects of her work is that she has managed to elevate the art form to more of a fine art approach, while maintaining the beautiful whimsy that one finds in Mexican Folk Art. You can definitely see the trademark style of her family in her work still, and it is fantastic seeing another family member keeping these traditions alive. Being from an up and coming, truly talented artist, this Owl carving will make a great and unusual addition to your collection! There are no removable parts.This wood carving has been signed by both Jose Juan and Julia... a truly delightful young couple!
