(Not so) wise old owl

I've got several irons in the fire right now, but I completed this bead recently. It measures 3/4 inch (1.9 cm) in height. Carved out of boxwood, with ebony eyes. I had in mind the depiction of an 'elder statesman' of sorts- the kind we're all supposed to respect- but holding more opinions than common sense. With suitable frown and suspicious eyes, he seems to fit the bill.
