How this was Created:
I saw the Zen Elephant by 0827 and showed it to a friend's wife. She exclaimed, "How Nice!" and then asked, "Can you print one with wings?" So, I thought about it and realized a common go to wing style is an Eagles wings. These were not practical for a large round elephant. I looked more and saw an owl and thought that owls are like miniature elephants - round and heavy. I also saw that the owl's wings were short and shaped for heavy lifting. Thus, the making of a Fantasy Animal emerged from imagining owl's wings carrying a heavy, round, regal 'Zen Elephant.'
