Imbue your cards with the wisdom of the great Athena, Greek Goddess of intellect, knowledge and justice. Known as Minerva to the Romans, Athena gave her name to Athens, the birthplace of democracy. As she so often was depicted in ancient Greece, Athena is represented here as an owl.
At least eight different types of owls appear on this fabric, in variations of brown, rust, tawny, charcoal, and white. Each owl is subtly accented with a thin line of metallic gold, so the surface glints and catches the light.
Owl Symbolism: The owl's nocturnal nature has led cultures all over the world to the same symbolic significance. In Egyptian, Celtic, Hindu, and many Native American traditions, owls are guardians of the underworld and protectors of the spirits of the dead. To many indigenous peoples of the Americas, West Africa, and Australia, the owl is a keeper of secrets and is a common companion to seers and medicine people.
People the world over view the owl as a ruler of the night and a seer of truths in darkness. They allow one's soul to fly free of the physical plane into the realm of spirit. No wonder the owl is the totem of the wise!
