Bronze sculpture details
The symbol of wisdom in a truly awe-inspiring form. Simon’s owl seems to be gazing at the foolish activities of humans with a mixture of forbearance and equanimity.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Robert Simon could have been a musician. Before he became a sculptor, he studied music, but decided to perfect his sculpting talents which were clearly visible in his youth. In Austria - at the sculpture school Geisler-Moroder, he has been sharing his knowledge and experience as a lecturer with the next generation. At the same time, he completed an apprenticeship as a wood and stone sculptor.
