Saw-Whet Owl Sculpture
Like the burrowing owls at our National Zoo, this adorable Saw-Whet Owl Sculpture reminds us that in nature, the saw-whet is as small as a robin and makes a tooting whistle like a saw being sharpened on a whetstone. His head shyly turned—to question, to ponder, perhaps to greet—this Saw-Whet Owl Sculpture hopes to find a permanent home with you. Cast aluminum with bronzed finish. 6.75"h. x 3.5"l. x 4"w.
Infinitely appealing and wisely mute, this Saw-Whet Owl Sculpture recalls burrowing owls—also about the size of a robin—at our National Zoo.
Fine owl sculptures are among the collections at our Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, our Smithsonian American Art Museum, and our National Museum of the American Indian.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
