Owl by Marian Sava, Little Belgian Granite, Sculpture
12"H x 12"L x 12"W
As the symbol of wisdom andknowledge, the OWL impresses us by its appearance and behavior.
I got the idea to represent this sculpture through a pure and elegant geometric element – a sphere in which I carved out two deep eyes and I worked delicately to emboss its beak, thinking that these two parts of the body are those that attract the attention.In my imagination, the shape of the sphere represents the long, gloomy hooting of the OWL, to which we listen in the night, with fear.“Nocturnal hooting... symbol of wisdom"
SAVA's work is unique because he immortalizes in his sculptures the invisible waves of the universe, naming the result VIBRATIONS in 3D. SAVA tames our emotions and questions our consciousness by the refined strength of its sculptures in marble, bronze and wood.
Often, when the sculpture itself asks the artist to give it life, he instills it by adding an inner light, which becomes a fourth dimension.
