Additional Information

Lilly & Lola by Leah Mariani – In my painting the wise owl a female character, indicated by placing her with the girl. They lean into each other, sharing a connection and an intimate moment.

The owl depicted with the girl seeks to challenge the stereotypical personality traits we attribute to each sex. The owl is commonly associated with wisdom and is nearly always cast as male in children’s nursery rhymes and fairy tales. This painting in particular was inspired by two nursery rhymes; The Wise Old Owl and the Owl and the Pussy Cat. In both cases the language tells us that the owl is male and attributes certain characteristics to him. For example, in A Wise Old Owl, the owl is observant and wise. In the Owl and the Pussy Cat, the owl is charming while the cat is beautiful and wants to get married. Being wise and worldly are traits that are stereotypically attributed to males while females are portrayed as being more interested in their appearance and attracting a husband. Historically this may have been the case, since women had limited opportunities for higher education and financial independence. However, despite the advancement of women’s rights, these stereotypes persist.

The pattern on the clothing was creating using stencils. The painting is framed in a raw oak timber frame.
