Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season. One of my favorite things about holidays is decorations. I would spend hours looking at magazines, pictures from holiday home tours and window displays. While browsing online for all the wonderful holiday window decorations, I came across the fantastic owl window display designed by artist Chris Cole for Barneys New York holiday 2014 "Baz Dazzled" on Madison Avenue. I can't believe I missed it earlier but it's a wonderful piece to not feature here.
The kinetic, steampunk inspired owl sculpture measures 6½ ft tall, named “Patterson” was the star of the 'Truth' window. Made of steel, aluminium and brass feathers, the owl could talk to the passers-by, rotate his head left and right and ruffle his wings.
