A beautifully detailed pewter owl pendant in the style of a greek owl with spiral eyes. Hanging on a tin-plated trace chain. In the western world owls are commonly believed to be a symbol of knowledge and wisdom. In Greek mythology the owl was said to represent or accompany Athena the virgin goddess of wisdom .
Spirals can be traced back 7000 years, developing from observing natural examples in shells and plants. Clockwise and anticlockwise spirals represent the inner and outer evolution of the spirit respectively. In relation to the seasonal calendar these relate to the winter and summer, the year being polarised into light and dark seasons. In Celtic belief this translates to the theme in which one always moves from the darkness into the light.

WILDSTREAM TV IS A COMMUNITY INTEREST COMPANY
WildstreamTV builds networks of ultrahigh definition cameras that record wildlife continuously every hour and every day throughout the seasons. Each setup is the result of many years of fieldcraft to produce immersive and seldom seen behaviours of our iconic British Wildlife. This includes often never seen creatures such as Kingfishers, Otters and Barn Owls. They then install 4K screens with ‘slow tv’ footage to health and community settings where access to wildlife or nature is difficult.
