A beautifully detailed bronze owl pendant in the style of a Greek Owl with spiral eyes. Comes on an 18″ gold 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.

Bronze is a very hard metal that looks like gold when first seen. We only use copper and tin, referred to as “classic bronze”, to make it. Our ancestors used bronze to make swords and these were only superseded when iron was discovered. We cast our bronze using the lost wax process, due to its high melting point.
