Incredible Great Horned Owl Paper Sculpture

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you enjoy this amazing paper sculpture that I discovered on this website. I am awed every time I look at it and think of the amount of patience and attention to detail went into making this piece. It sure needs a lot love and demands immense dedication to strategically gluing those tiny pieces together to create something this beautiful.

Enjoy your weekend and see you on Monday,
