Owl small alabaster statue, the symbol of wisdom (No.1)

Handmade small greek alabaster statue of owl, the symbol of wisdom.

Special souvenirs from Greece, handmade alabaster statue of owl.

In Greek mythology, the owl (Athene noctua) was associated with Athena, the greek goddess of wisdom, handicraft, warfare, patron and protectress of the city of Athens. In the Ancient Greek art the goddess is usually portrayed holding an owl on her hand or with her shield which is often decorated with an owl.
Hence, as a result of such an association the owl, also known as  the owl of Athena or the owl of Minerva, is worldwidely considered as a symbol of wisdom, knowledge, perspicacity and erudition. .
