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.
Crafted in Colombia. One AAA battery, not included. Approximately 10 1/2"W x 10"H.
Clock works fine. I really like the swinging tail. I bought this for my daughter-in-law. I thought the paint wasn't National Geographic quality. It was a little sloppy and smeared.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
