Mural: City Of Perth

As a part of revitalization of The City Of Perth this 99 metre long stunning mural was painted by Scott Neoh and Hiroyasu Tsuri – also knows as Bonsai and Two-One. The mural features spray-painted native Australian birds and some very impressive owls. The following video shows the artists in action on the first day and the large-scale of the mural.

Images found here and here.

The Naef Animal Wooden Puzzle consists of 25 maple wood cubes which can be formed into face of an elephant, monkey, lion, owl, hare or bear, or you can make create your own designs like "hare-bear", "lion-owl". The set is expensive but if you feel like splurging these would make such a unique gift for years to enjoy.

The Cellar Serveware: Owl Collection

What an adorable owl collection by The Cellar Serveware? I spotted these owls starring at me at Macy's departmental store in San Francisco. These bright white porcelain owls are adorned with the beautiful flora pattern in black and red contemporary combination. The range includes cookie jar (my favorite of the collection), salt and pepper shakers and the platter.
