What Do Owls Symbolize?
Owls typically symbolize the night since they are nocturnal birds. They also seem to be synonymous with solitude, wisdom (hence a wise old owl), silence, and intelligence.
What is an Owl Lover Called?
A person who can’t get enough of owls in any way, shape, or form is referred to as “owlish” or “strigine.” In general, being owlish may only refer to having large, owl-like eyes or wearing big glasses. It may also refer to having a solemn mood or appearance. Either way, you may be thought to just be too wise for the rest of the world.
What Do You Buy an Owl Lover?
You have choices when it comes to what gifts to buy an owl lover. Virtually anything comes in a version featuring an owl. What type of person are you buying an owl gift for? If they are a gardener, you can find an array of owl outdoor ceramics and decor. The same goes for someone who loves to decorate their house in owl-friendly fabrics and accessories. Others love a good piece of owl jewelry, but if you have an ultra-quirky friend who loves owls, go for the weirdest owl gift you can find. Know your owl lover and they will thank you for it.
Is an Owl a Good or Bad Luck?
Just about every culture in world history has attached some mythical meaning to owls. Native Americans considered the owl to be, at times, a messenger of death, carrier of an evil spirit, and protector of the underworld. In medieval Europe, witches were thought to covet the power that owls possessed. These days, owls are not thought to be good or bad luck but simply fascinating creatures we rarely see in waking life. This may be why we love putting them on clothes, jewelry, and other items we surround ourselves with (1).
What Is So Special About Owls?
People tend to really love these unique nocturnal creatures that inhabit stillness and solitude. It may be that they can rotate their necks up to 270 degrees, which is quite impressive. Their depth perception and sense of their prey are so laser-focused, it’s scary. Otherwise, their many quirks and atypical habits continue to captivate our imaginations.
