Item:163795544915UP for Auction… Amazing Antique Mask of Ancient Egyptian OWL Bust Figure...LARGE, with great details ….17th AD Private Collection Normal 0 false false false EN-CA X-NONE X-NONE OWL: Ancient Egyptians and Celtic cultures believe that the symbolic meaning of the owl revolves solely around guardianship of the underworlds, and the protection of the dead. Since the owl is viewed as a spiritual symbol, owls are found in other cultures as well....The owls, patron birds of goddess Athena, have a history that goes beyond the common association with wisdom and knowledge. Much like in ancient Greece, where the love of wisdom flourished, owls played a part in many a peoples’ mythology, culture, language and art. An exploration into the role this bird had in people’s beliefs, provides us with a mirror that enlivens the beliefs of folklore that persist to this day. In ancient Egypt, owls were known as ‘keen-sighted hunters’ but were also associated with mourning and death. Owls, interestingly enough, even played a part in a parody of a scene from the Book of the Dead. Although few examples of owls in ancient Egyptian art are known to us today, their representation as a hieroglyph standing for the letter /m/ is very common. Thanks to these representations, together with some of their actual remains, we can have a glimpse today into what kinds of owls lived in Egypt in ancient times.
