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.

      Comments about HAITI OWL SCULPTURE:

      I ordered the owl as a gift for my mother-in-law and myself. The owls are unique and a great conversation starter. I was surprised at how heavy it is, but that is not a bad thing, just made me rethink where I was going to put it. My mother-in-law hasn't received it yet (her birthday is in a few weeks) and I'm sure she'll love it.

      The gift wrap is great!

          I ordered this as a decoration for some shelves above my living room TV. Looks great, is a decent size, and love that it comes with a card about the sculptor who created it!

            Comments about HAITI OWL SCULPTURE:

            I purchased three of these owls as thank-you gifts for three very different individuals (who all happened to help me on the same project). They all loved them. The workmanship is beautiful, the design unique. One found a home on a desk, another on a dining room table, and the third on the mantle. We ordered another owl for a departing coworker of my husband's. She also loved it, and it turns out she had a long-standing affection for owls. I also love that these are hand-made in Haiti. Who wouldn't want to support such skilled artists enduring such difficult conditions? These beautiful little sculptures are well worth the price.

                    It was by random chance that I came across this little statue and I'm so glad I decided to buy it! It's the perfect little whimsy addition to my desk! It's completely unique in that my statue's eyes are a little lopsided which makes me love it all the more because it's one of kind!!
