Truly captivating, the presence of this ceramic owl is substantiated by a fierce gaze sent from piercing black eyes. Further adding to the character, ruffled inlaid feathers hint of an adventurous past. Painterly brush strokes are expressively strewn across the body that wonderfully accentuate the bulbous curves of the vase and denote a corporeal form. With a bright color palette, this stunning work lets Picasso's artistic handling shine through.
