          In 1967 Dame Elisabeth Frink created a series of lithographs. The series focuses on animal subjects, from horses and ducks to a lioness. Owl has an unfinished look due to the sketch style used to create the owl and only half the background is filled in. In its claws the owl has a small mouse which is the same colour as the background, so it’s easy to miss.

          Artist details

          Dame Elisabeth Frink was an English sculptor and printmaker who studied at the Guildford School of Art at the Chelsea School of Art. Frink’s range of subjects included the human figure, birds, dogs, horses and religious motifs. Frink created a lot of bronze outdoor sculptures, her style generalised the form and eliminated the detail of the sculptures. Frink’s continued fascination with flight was evident in a series of falling figures and winged men that she made during the 1960s.
