The Owl Man

Unexpected new art, a gift from local sculptor- polymath (and probable cousin of some kind; see below– we share “origin myths”, though have not checked genealogy, and McCabes are rarer than most of my old books), Sigrid “Nina” McCabe, like me a committed incomer.

He is cute and even pretty but rather spooky– echoes of Bosch, Penitentes, old Spain, and maybe of medieval plague doctors with their protective beaked masks. Lib adds Gorey’s Doubtful Guest— I can see him there, too.

A fitting Halloween addition!
