The Peruvian sculptor who creates this diminutive pair of owls says he selects the stones that speak to him when choosing raw materials to work with. In this sculpture he works with serpentine, white onyx, aragonite, rose quartz, and sodalite, and follows the stone’s natural contours and grains. Please accept some variation in each hand-carved piece.


Handcarved in Peru. Approximately 4 3/4"W x 8"H x 2 3/4"D.

          The Owls will be a gift to my owl-collecting sister.
          It is a very nice gift item but including a romance card giving the various stones used would really be a good idea.

                Category: Home & Garden/Home Décor/Home Accents

                This charming owl clock with its tail feather pendulum has an ancient connection to the mythology of Colombia’s precolonial Muisca culture. Huitaca was the goddess of pleasure, drink, and dance. Her husband, Bochica, was the god of morality. This unlikely match ended when Bochica, frustrated with his wife’s antics, turned her into an owl and commanded her to hold up the sky. Artisans in Cota, Colombia, craft this bright accent piece from hand-painted metal. Let its whimsy remind you to enjoy life’s pleasures, in moderation.

                For thousands of years, Peruvian weavers have produced elaborate garments piece by piece on narrow looms. Rather than hiding the seams, the weavers often enhanced the garments with decorative stitches. Once a necessity, these stitches now become distinctive accents that give this red baby alpaca-blend cardigan a hand-embellished touch.

                Since ancient times, the owl and the olive branch have been featured on the Athenian currency to spread the values of the city’s patroness, Athena: victory, peace, and wisdom. The owl, with its ability to see in the darkness, represents wisdom; and the olive branch is a symbol of the goddess’s peaceful victory over Poseidon for the city of Athens. These sacred symbols propagated Athenian values of victory, peace, and wisdom throughout the ancient world, and are still featured on the Greek €1 coin.

                As soft as it is elegant, this modern black poncho from the Peruvian designer Jorge Molina invites you to experience “the elements that meet under the Andean sky.” With bold horizontal pleats, this poncho feels right for the boulevards of Lima and the stark openness of mountains villages. Wear it like a traditional poncho, or adjust the V opening to your back, and the poncho softly drapes off the shoulders just like a shawl.

At the height of the Inca empire, alpaca was reserved for the emperor and high-ranking officials. Today it's a versatile fiber used by everyone in items from blankets and baby carriers to sweaters and ponchos. Its light weight and naturally water-resistant properties make it perfect for travel.

                The native doves of Peru appear much like their northern cousins, but when they take flight, their brilliant wing patches appear as shining crescents of bright white feathers. The doves’ call—coo-coo-lee—has earned this Peruvian bird the nickname cuculi. Inspired by this familiar but beautiful local bird, the long and lovely Peruvian Dove cardigan sweater wraps you in gossamer warmth. With a delicate and subtly asymmetrical grey and white pattern, the open collar can be pulled in close for a shawl-like effect, or worn open and loose for a dramatic and flattering drape. This superlight alpaca sweater is hand-finished in the Peruvian Andes by a company dedicated to supporting local Andean communities and craftsman.

                Cotton has been grown and processed in Peru for centuries, long before the arrival of Europeans, but it is only in the 20th century that cotton has become a staple of the Peruvian economy. Comfortable and lightweight, this denim shirt is made in Peru from pure Peruvian cotton that has been softened to create an exceptionally relaxed fabric. Monochromatic embroidery adds a rich but subtle touch of artistry.
