Barn-owl carved mirror.

just finished this , been on the bench for a few weeks, owl is carved from lime, the old wood frame is aged by myself, ivy leaves are made from soft drinks cans and soft soldered to copper twigs, all painted with acrylic paints, the broken glass is made safe by grinding all edges.
