Saw-Whet Owl Sculpture
What American owl is as small as a robin, makes a tooting whistle like a saw being sharpened on a whetstone and is mentioned in the Grateful Dead song Unbroken Chain? Yes, the northern saw-whet! 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.
Recalls burrowing owls—also about the size of a robin—at our National Zoological Park.
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.
