A brass, crystal, and geode Brutalist style sculpture of an owl on a wood base. Most likely done by Artist Claude Barbat. Highly detailed and intricate.

The brass engraved plaque reads: "Dear Charlie with friendship and admiration, Robert" This piece is from the estate of Mr. Charles Bludhorn, who acquired Paramount Pictures in 1966.
