Steve Kestrel’s “metaphorical forms,” as he calls them, are animals rendered out of—and into—geometries, abstractions designed to reveal the essence of the animals. Opulent Owl, for example, is all circles and ovals, an evocation in bronze, you might say, of the round “Whoo-hoo” tones of the nocturnal bird.
