Spent some time with a friend today,
in the conversation he mentioned his former teacher,
who makes animals from wood shavings.
The owls beak and claws are made up of hundreds of layers of shavings.
He studies wildlife to make his models as accurate as possible. He even has a patent on his technique
He was offered 60, 000 pound ($100,000) for the owl, but refused to sell.
