|4th Place||Red-eyed Owl||Fairy House Olesya Averina||This unique toy is made in the style of a natural animal. It is made of several types of artificial fur, viscose and fur for miniature bears. Another combination of tissues was chosen. Also hand painting with artistic oil. This will allow the bird flower to remain safe for many years. Very painstaking implantation of black rays by hand. Glass, German eyes. The beak and claws are made of plastic, very durable. The bird is very mobile and behaves like real. In the wings there is a plastic skeleton, which allows the owl to open wings and fold them on the back. Each feather on the wings is sewn separately from each other and has a skeleton frame that provides greater mobility and revitalization of the bird. The legs inside also have a skeleton made of plastic, so they can be bent to find a balance for the bird. Owl is dense on the legs. The fingers on the wire frame, and they can also be bent, like the fingers of a real bird. The head of the toy turns in different directions. It is filled with sintepon. For weight and balance inside there is a metal granulate. An excellent example for your collection will be a unique toy in the style of a natural bird. Decorate your house and become a good friend.
