Statue of an Owl on top of books
Branch: 
Location: 
Second Floor
Artist: 
Bart Walter

This is the owl, books and eyeglasses sculpture that so many of us associate with knowledge (and others associate with Harry Potter!). Walter’s artwork can be found in notable public and private collections worldwide. He is primarily known for his loose representational style and unique approach to the handling of surface. His works, in both bronze and stainless steel, are highly expressive and reflect a deep and sympathetic understanding of his subjects.
