The Owl Sculpture.

                I spotted this wonderful owl on a book sculpture in the Oslo Botanic gardens.
The versions above are slightly 'posterized' in Photoshop, just to get an idea of what texture I might aim for with a lino cut. You might need to click on the photo to enlarge it to show the difference.
Unfortunately at first glance it appears to have a giant mouth, but it's only the feathers with the beak hidden in amongst them. Obviously I'll have to change this, after all it must be a European owl and not one of our local Australian owls.
