Artemis is a piece by Kasia Polkowska and Kyle Cunniff of Alamosa, CO.
The inspiration for Artemis is the owl’s prevalence in today’s pop culture. Say the artists: “Owls seem to have burrowed themselves into many aspects of our lives – fashion, design, art, etc.
These mysterious, nocturnal creatures have captivated the human mind. They are beautiful specimens, adorned in natural patterns of intricate feathers. But their striking, keen eyes may be what enthralls us the most and adds to their wise demeanor.
They are enigmatic creatures of the night, and symbolically they are the keepers of sacred knowledge. They have sparked our curiosity and through it have found their way into our hearts. Every time we see an owl – a real one up in a tree or a man-made tribute – it is a treat.”
