Owl symbolic jewellery
The majestic power of the night-hunting owl was recognized by people around the world. To the Celts, the owl symbolized age and its attendant wisdom. Owls have a long history with humans. The relationship is probably not as close as that between humans and diurnal birds of prey, but, nevertheless, owls abound in myths, poems, paintings, and folklore. It is probably the owls’ almost human “face” that makes them so popular with many people. Today representations of owls, whether it is a painting, a sculpture, or a piece of jewellery are popular with collectors. However, owls are probably hated and feared in some cultures as much as they are liked and revered in others.
