The Midnight Garden Of Great Owl

May Ann Licudine is a very talented artist based in La Union, Philippines. She made this custom owl toy for a client who wanted something inspired by The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch. This owl is a stunning piece which stand 8 inches tall with all around painting.

A little story behind the title - The Midnight Garden of Great Owl "At the midnight time, Great Owl wakes up and transforms his feathery chest into his mysterious garden. He allows any innocent creatures to live in his garden. He always watches over his own garden and good friends from evils and demons. When the sunrise starts, Great Owl goes back to his feathery look and falls asleep for regaining his strength." I think it's an appropriate and a beautiful interpretation of this genius piece. She welcomes commissions and can be contacted through her website.
