The owl is one of the most fascinating birds in the world. Western cultures around the world regard this bird as a symbol of wisdom and knowledge. However, most other cultures often saw the bird in a much more ominous way. The early Americas and many African tribes saw the owl as a symbol of death. The Middle East also depicted the bird as a bad omen.
Whatever you culture thinks about this bird, it is still an awesome creature. I have found a number of beautiful designs of owls that I wanted to share.
