A New Weiler Owl Statue
We are very excited to announce the release of a new Weiler bronze owl statue created by Dale Weiler. Monies raised from the sale of the owl sculpture will help support wildlife conservation programs underway at The Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History (RTPI) in Jamestown, NY. Roger Tory Peterson (1908-1996) was one of the nation’s pre-eminent bird-artists and among our most influential naturalists. He is best known for the Peterson Field Guide Series on birds and other flora and fauna. RTPI carries on his legacy by connecting people to nature through art, education, and conservation.
The bronze, “Elevated Perspective”, is a 9-inch rendering of a snowy owl, one of Peterson’s favorite species to paint and the icon for RTPI. It is also the first bronze Dale has created in the last ten years. We are donating 100% of the profits to RTPI’s ‘Project Wild America’ initiative – a program which promotes experiencing nature in your own backyard.
Project Wild America will receive 100% of Profits
Project Wild America encourages young people to get involved in conservation work with threatened wildlife, especially in urban environments. The program reinforces the notion that nature is all around us in plain sight. We just have to know where and how to look; skills well-honed by artists and naturalists alike.
The original for the bronze was sculpted from snowy alabaster and captures not only the subtle feathering but the sensual beauty of this majestic bird. Dale spent over a month creating the stone original. The bronze casting is limited to an edition size of 50. It is even more dramatic than the stone original with the feathering details accentuated by the patina process.
The price for the bronze is $1,500 plus applicable sales tax and shipping. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity and support the wonderful conservation programs of RTPI. To purchase one, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much for helping wildlife.
