The Handsworth Park Owl and the Pussycat

The design for this owl was developed following a series of drawing workshops with children in Handsworth Park and it is inspired by owl mythology, symbolism, geometric design and sacred geometry. A colourful fun design, which on closer viewing reveals deeper symbolic representations of wisdom and perception.

Artist: Scylla Magda working with Handsworth Park Association

The owl is part of the wider Handsworth Park Arts Trail running from July to October 2015, which includes art and sculptures from well-known local and nationally acclaimed artists, located around the beautiful setting of the Boating Lake in Handsworth Park.
