Cactus Devil Number 4 is an extraordinary owl fetish. This is a rare collectible and unique one of a kind necklace handmade from rare materials by two artists.
Elf and pygmy owls commonly nest in cavities hollowed out of huge saguaro cacti. This unique talisman is carved from the fallen skeleton of one such desert giant. Saguaro grow very slowly. This very collectible owl came from a cactus at least 20 feet (6 m) tall that likely lived for a couple centuries and must have hosted countless owls and other critters while history passed by.
This cactus sculpture was created with unhurried patience, allowing its character to develop fully while being worked and ending when it seems fully imbued with mojo and charged with talismanic energy.
This is the fourth of the Cactus Devil series. It is 100% hand made by Guy and Patty Sparger
Rare Item Alert! This is a one-of-a-kind carving made from the ‘rib’ of a giant saguaro cactus. This wood is very rare and our supply is always limited.
Because cactus wood is a natural material harvested in the wild, subtle imperfections and character marks are to be expected. Beautiful flaws assert handmade quality!

A Comment About Saguaro Wood:
Saguaro cactus wood (‘ribs’) is a very rare material. The Sonoran Desert where these giant cacti grow is a fragile & protected ecosystem that depends on balanced plant / animal relationships to thrive. Animals depend on dead saguaro as nests. Fallen dead material feeds insects and nourishes soil, enabling new growth. Nothing in the desert is wasted. The Bureau Of Land Management (BLM) allows an individual to take an armload of fallen ribs from certain wilderness regions per year. We’re concerned that even this limited amount of plundering is harmful so we only take a stick or two from any location. Before we disturb any site we thoroughly and carefully inspect the deadfall for nests. We never take from the same spot twice. All of the cactus wood and stones used in our small carvings are gathered from the wild desert by us. We only gather in very small, always legal quantities from BLM approved areas. We always tread lightly and leave no trace :)
