This wonderful grandfather owl has earned his feathers through making wise choices. The owl represents wisdom and an owl with many feathers truly is wise and has made good choices along life’s journey of daily challenges. According to the artist,” the feather often is given with prayer by the elders and society leaders of the tribe. The number of feathers received by one is the ultimate acknowledgement of a rewarding life of a people. Thus, the harmony of life is shown rather than spoken. Truly, one has earned his feathers along life’s journey of many daily challenges.”

In addition, the wonderfully wise owl has two etched bear paws on the back. The bear represents strength and knowledge, indeed.

Condition: Excellent- original condition- new.
Provenance: Purchased from the artist.
