Water is the quintessential embodiment of nature. Of life. It is the natural force that nurtures all creation.

These are perpetual tears of relief and refreshment, tears that help give birth to an otherwise wasted land.

And so, nature's shrine forevermore guards over all that lives.

What best conveys water? That is what I was constantly asking myself. I've always admired table fountains for their beautiful sculpture and eloquent displays of falling water. I roughly based my creation off of that concept.

An excellent creation -R8-, very artistic and creatively-done! Looking at the flowing tears in this owl table fountain really gives an emotional connection to the viewer (for me at least). Great work! :thumbup:

That's a great owl sculpture! The way you used those large wedges above the eyes makes it instantly recognisable as an owl. :classic: The entire concept idea is fantastic as well!
