Paying homage to Gaudi the architect from Spain who was famous for his unique style and highly individualistic designs, this design is based on the Blakiston’s Fish Owl, a sub-group of the Eagle-Owl. It is the largest, and one of the most endangered species of owl in the world. They can be found in Japan, Russia and Euroasia and feed on a variety of aquatic prey including crayfish, pike, salmon and trout. Blakiston’s Fish Owl is revered by the Ainu peoples of Hokkaido, Japan as a Kamuy (divine being) called Kotan kor Kamuy (God that Protects the Village)."
