Paper Pygmys

15 Mar

Reminiscent of Audrey’s paper pets, I recently came across these recycled paper pygmy owls created by artist Courtney Cerruti. She describes her owls as such: “Unlike other animals that use camouflage to blend into their environment, this species of owl (the Glaucidium Crypsis) has the unique capability to change its  appearance to that of its artificial surroundings.”

I also like artist Aimee Baldwin‘s Northern Saw Whet Owl, whose body is made of paper clay and foam and whose feathers are made of hand-cut crepe paper.

For everyone who likes the idea of animals as room decor, but aren’t into murder, these birds are for you!
