The artist will donate 80% of proceeds of this sale to Woodlands Wildlife, a non-profit organization for the benefit of local wildlife (support and rehabilitation for injured or orphaned wildlife, and education programs for local schools and organizations). Ronnie James, Director of Woodlands Wildlife, states "The sculpture captures the essence of the Snowy Owl, that odd look all owls seem to have when they look straight at you." The sculpture is carved from Utah blue marble, which has an icy blue cast, with large marble crystals. The stone inspired the sculptor to make something that would utilize that frozen look; thus the snowy owl, coming out of an icy appearing base. This is a durable marble, appropriate to be inside or out, and looks wonderful outside on an old stump.
