Inuit owlies


Another look at some of the art from the Museum of Inuit Art. I must admit, the bird sculptures were my favorite and I especially like owls.

I'm actually surprised they let you take pictures!

I have never photographed a real owl. They sure are cool birds.

There was a VERY loud owl making noise the other morning outside my back porch. Went out and listened. It was still dark and it was LOUD. Magnificant!

I really like the artwork.

I probably won't be back. I have been here a number of times and became a follower. How many times have you been to my blog?

Since I was hacked I had to give up my old user name and the blogs that went with it.

So this is the new birds blog and I hope you can come visit. Birds Birds Birds and Birds

The owl is beautiful. Are these carved from stone?

Oh purée j'adore ! Merci !

@Regina - yes, these are from stone. I believe the teeny tiny ones I showed earlier were animal tusks (walrus, etc). But to be honest, I don't remember and I can't find any info on their website.

@Paul - they only allowed photos with no flash. Many of my shots didn't come out.

they remind me 1970s kitsch and I love them :)

I have seen some Inuit art before. These seem to be carved more fully. I wasn't excited about the ones I had seen before, but these are good.

This makes me stop and think. We say owls in Costa Rica the week before last. That's a heck of a range.

The black on is beautiful.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
