Bronze sculpture Owls

Owl – traditionally a symbol of wisdom.

This symbolism originates from ancient Athens, where the owl was considered the companion and attribute of the goddess of wisdom and study Athens

Bird collection

Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes about 200 species of mostly solitary. Nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing, sharp talons, and feathers adapted for silent flight.
Owls hunt mostly small mammals, insects, and other birds, although a few species specialize in hunting fish. They are found in all regions of the Earth except polar ice caps and some remote islands.

The modern West generally associates owls with wisdom and vigilance. This link goes back at least as far as Ancient Greece, where Athens, noted for art and scholarship, and Athena, Athens’ patron goddess and the goddess of wisdom, had the owl as a symbol.
