Mr. and Mrs. Owl
One winter day, 2 owls that are waiting for spring to come.


In my idea, the 2 owls are representing a new beginning. They are waiting "under the snow" for a new life cycle to start. The baby owls come early in the spring, so it is saying that they are also an emblem of birth and fertility.

Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?

On one hand, the owls are the symbol of a world full of mystery and wisdom, on the other, they symbolize birth and death. My idea is meant to emphasize a funnier version of them and however if the body language does not reveal such behavior, mustache shall bring some flavor of amusement and laughter on purchaser’s face.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

This great bird have many meanings in all cultures. In mythology, the owl was a symbol of wisdom and femininity. According to the myth, the owl was Athena's blind eye, so she could see the whole truth. She was the goddess of wisdom and strategy,

What story does your design tell?

The design was formed around the idea of family. The 2 newly weds, Mr and Mrs Owl, are waiting, more comfortable or not, for the spring to come, because they wanted to start a new cycle of life.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

I chose painting style of the wild life, because I think that it looks good on this project and suits many classes of purchasers.
