"Stunning Sculpture!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This owl sculpture is impeccably carved! Although it looks exactly as photographed, the pictures simply do not do it justice. The color of the soapstone is lovely, and the sculpture itself is incredibly sturdy. The artisan is a master at what he does, and it shows in his work. It is the most beautifully carved owl I've ever seen, and I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase.

This is an amazing piece with a tiny owl, inside another owl and that owl is inside yet another, and you can see all three. I cherish mine.

"Sopstone owl pair a wise purchase choice :)"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love this pair of Sopstone oil burners! Packaging from India was amazing- no way that these little guys were going to break in transit. Natural color variation in each of the owls is awesome (beautiful patterns), and the Jali carving is top-notch. The base of each owl glows with candlelight- just as shown in the photo. Oil basins work perfectly for heating aromatics. The soapstone gets quite hot, so be careful while the owls are in use (be sure to position them on a heat-safe surface while burning). Also, be sure to keep an eye on the volume of fluid remaining in the oil basins if you burn over an extended period of time (if burning essential oils in water, the water can evaporate quickly). Awesome. I love everything about them. Would absolutely purchase a second time and recommend to friends. I own several items by this same artist, and plan on purchasing future works from him as well.

Best Uses

  • Burning essential oils with charm and style
