Three owls sitting on a log where seen in the stone by the artist before carving. Sculptor John Mcinnis says it was the brown colour of this Brazilian soapstone that made him think of owls. In the T shape of the stone, he saw them sitting on a log. This piece is about "brotherhood', a bunch of brothers, a family sitting together, represented by the number three. Carved out of one piece of stone, John's Inuit carving skills and cultural appreciation can be seen as an influence in the rounded style and soft edges of this piece.
