From Native American legends to Harry Potter, the owl has always played an important role in history and literature. In Greek mythology, the owl is sacred to Athena, the goddess of learning and is also depicted on some Greco-Roman currency as a symbol of status, intelligence and wealth. Native Americans associated the owl with wisdom, foresight and as the keeper of sacred knowledge. West African and Aboriginal Australian cultures viewed the owl as a messenger of secrets and as the companion to seers and mystics. In medieval times, it was thought that owls were actually witches or wizards in disguise and even today, the owl is considered to be a witch’s familiar or an animal soul linked to a spiritual person. The owl has fascinated us for centuries. Its unusual characteristics and amazing beauty make it the center figure of many legend and campfire story. Just the mention of this nocturnal animal brings many images to mind from the wise owl in Winnie the Pooh to the cartoon owl who would answer that memorable question “Just how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?”
