Owls in Architecture

Minimize

It is surprising how often owls are used in architecture - either carved in stone, shown in stained glass or added as a sculpture.  WVAS member, Stephanie Taylor discovered this carved owl on the abandoned former Concannon High School in West Terre Haute.  


  
An interesting photo website titled "Owls in Architecture" shows just how popular the use of owls in architecture is around the world.  Hundreds of photo's showing owls in architecture my be seen at this website: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1447063@N24/pool/with/6160195944/#photo_6160195944
