The Owl

A great hunter, she moves silently between the trees, has a fine hearing and a particularly well developed eyesight, suitable for seeing and hearing its prey at great distances.


Its head rotates 270°, which gives her the particularity of discerning what others cannot see. She dominates the darkness. Her nocturnal manners associate her with death. This death means a transition, a change, heralding a renewal. 

In Ancient Greece, the owl was the attribute of Athena, Goddess of war, a symbol of wisdom, knowledge and reflection. 


This totem encourages us to look beyond deceptive appearances to reveal the reality of a situation or a person’s motivations.
