- the story
A Wise Choice
Steeped in wisdom and mystery, this curvaceous owl sculpture carries even greater significance with its special production process. Created by Haiti craftsmen through Aid to Artisans--an organization helping communities in developing countries build profitable businesses--each piece is sourced from stone purchased by local quarries. Artisans then hand-carve each owl using found materials. A richly symbolic complement to your desktop or office and a thoughtful choice for a worldly gift. Handmade in Haiti.
Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly.
