More than 120 hours I pinned a thin needle in sheep’s wool (and sometimes in my fingers) to create it. The creation of this felt sculpture inspired me to Eastern screech owl (Rufous morph). I really love this job and I’m proud of it.
Now this work is participating in the competition and I really need support to win it. The prize is sheep’s wool for my new works. If you think my owl worthy of winning, vote for it here.

And this is me – Hanna Tsukanova
First I create a base of unpainted sheep’s wool. I give the necessary form to the body and head
I create a tail for a bird using a wire frame
The feet of the owl are also made of sheep wool on a wire frame. To make them look realistic, I learned a lot of literary literature about birds
The most difficult and lengthy stage is the creation of wings. Almost every pen I created separately, and then fastened on the wing of a bird
I also created eyes for this owl. I drew them with acrylic paints, and then glued glass cabochons on top
A fragment of the acacia branch, on which the owl sits, helped me to cut and process my father
