Papa Winson

Inspired by the thoughts and ideas captured from the residents who attended a series of workshops, this owl depicts the industrial revolution, Birmingham’s involvement in the development of the steam engine, famous artists, canals, nature and the environment. The residents showed great enthusiasm and worked with the artist to transform their ideas into the final design.
