Marguerite also known as Guidette Carbonell (1910-2008) was a French ceramics and textile artist of the twentieth century. She used to make mind-blowing tapestry, sculptures and ceramics featuring animals especially owls, and nature. The photos of the gorgeous series of tapestries are from a retrospective of Carbonell's work  at Galerie Mercier, Paris. Below shown are some of her brilliant work that was focused on nocturnal creatures - owls, depicted in various shapes and abstract forms.
