The pair of double-sided owl ornaments are the only examples of their kind from Anyang. The two pieces are identical in style, each with a beaked owl head on both the front and back sides. The owl’s plumage, ears, eyes and jaw are rendered in high relief, while its upper beak is rendered in openwork. A hole is found in the center of each piece, possibly used to attach the piece to poles or shafts.
