This image of an Eurasian Eagleowl was originally created for one of the sections of the 'Fallen Totem'; a piece of workproduced to highlight endangered species and the animals that are effected by our destruction of their natural habitats. This was actually the first of the animals drawn for the series, and perhaps the strongest images. There are a lot of myths and old wives stories surrounding owls as they are one of the oldest species of vertebrate animal in existence - theyhave even been found in prehistoric cave paintings. 'Ugla' means 'owl' in old Norse.
