Owl-shaped snow circle shows up in field


Posted on Friday, 15 February, 2019 | Comment icon 12 comments
An impressive piece of artwork shaped like an owl's head has been filmed via drone in a snowy Wiltshire field.
Comprised of perfectly smooth lines, the geometrically perfect image was discovered by 59-year-old walker Chris Barrow on Roundway Hill, Devizes, Wiltshire earlier this month.

What makes it particularly intriguing is the extreme precision of its creator, especially given that it has been so carefully measured out and there is only a single set of footprints leading away from it.

Barrow was able to use a drone to captured aerial footage of the image.

"I couldn't believe it when I saw it," he said. "I just came across it by chance. It looks like completely virgin snow. It was fantastic to see. I don't know how they have done it."

Owl? Well perhaps I suppose if you had a propensity to see things resembling owls.

I believe I would have seen this as an owl, even without any prompting to view it thus. It's stylized, of course, but not really obscure. Given the footprints, a mundane explanation seems likely. Someone, taking a great deal of care, impressed this pattern into the snow, using a multitude of small, but still visible marks. The result is quite beautiful. 17 feathers above the eyes, 19 below. Intriguing choices, because they introduce a bit of asymmetry into an otherwise symmetrical design. 8 feathers on one side of the midline, at the top, 9 on the other. 10 feathers, and 9 on the bottom. Note ... [More]

People who honestly think "aliens" do things like this have a really low opinion of the abilities of many (very human) artists. I love it though, owls are cool and the design/execution is striking.

The really impressive thing is not what they achieved, but the fact that the snow came and only lasted for 2-3 days before it was gone. So this wasn?t something that for example, was in Iceland where they could prepare and practice a few times for several days. This was something they must have waited for and then rushed to produce in a single opportunity, without any recent rehearsal in snow as the previous snowfall was around 9-10 months before this.

You don't need a rehearsal to draw in the snow.

Well it’s pretty far from ‘perfectly symmetrical’ and ‘perfectly drawn’ and there are two sets of footprints leading away from it.  Impressive but exaggerated. And the geometry itself would not be hard to replicate at scale. Just need some rope, a post and some time.

Very cool.

So, we've gone from crop circles to snow doodles. I liked the old days better, when aliens built pyramids and henges.
