"Baby Owl"
Code: OM3
Size: 9x6x3 in; 11.1 lbs
Stone: Serpentine
S&H: Call
This piece is the offspring of the "Big Owl" by Obert Marime (OM8). The owl in the Zimbabwean culture, as well as in many other cultures, is a symbol of knowledge and wisdom. Though just a baby, this owl symbolizes that wisdom can also exist in our playful and less serious youth.

The stone color is a strong ocean green, with small sections of orange and yellow.
