The Big Hoot's Father Christmas Owl

Birmingham's one of the biggest Summer event The Big Hoot art project presented by Wild in Art in partnership with Birmingham Children’s Hospital gathered thousands of people who followed the hoot trail spread across city’s 10 districts. There were about 89 fiberglass owl sculptures measuring 5ft 5in decorated by artists with mind-boggling intricate artwork. At the end of the 10 week trail the huge owls were auctioned to raise money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

Now, the Big Hoot has returned at the Great Western Arcade in Birmingham with its holiday sculpture designed by artist Jane Anderson. The Father Christmas owl  "with a sackful of presents and fluffy white beard" can be seen in person until the 25th. 

Shown below are some of the beautiful owl sculptures from The Big Hoot Summer event.
