About the owl The creation of local artist, Josie Bahar, the classically-designed owl is decorated with gold, copper and silver leaf. The owl is inspired by traditional, eye-catching Venetian masks, which Josie used to make during her time in Venice, for Canivale celebrations.
About the sponsor Holburne Park is a new neighbourhood of beautifully-crafted, classically-styled homes within easy strolling distance of Bath city centre, yet close to the open countryside and offering panoramic views of the City’s famous skyline.
About the artist Josie has been painting for the past 30 years. In the last two years she has started sculpting in stone, and has also worked in mosaic and ceramic. She loves being creative and takes on commissions. Josie commented: “Owls look like they are wearing carnival masks in real life and with my experience in mask-making, it seemed to be the perfect choice for the design. Applying the gold, silver and copper leaf has to be done with real care and is very much a labour of love.”
