Forest in spring is peaceful. But as you lay down on the moss, everything changes and becomes alive. Experience the nature's sounds, movements, playfulness, worries and love. Nature is the kingdom of contrasts. You will see it if you take a break from your busy life. Let this little owl be the key to this kingdom!

When my wife was a child, her father gave her svilpaunieks made of wood - a forest owlet which soon became Tatjana's favourite toy and thus also the prototype of mine. We believe that the sound of the svilpaunieks will cheer you up and remind you of your childhood.

Owl symbolises wisdom. Not only the knowledge and skills but also wisdom to see, feel and experience. Let the forest owlet bring you wisdom to see the little miracles in everyday life and appreciate them!

My home and workshop is on top of a hill. Often we experience winds blowing from all four directions. So, naturally my svilpaunieks has a sleek shape with a slender neck so it can withstand the wind, fly and reach faraway lands.
