Description of the artwork «Owl»

The most ancient image of an owl is about 34,000 years old. It has been found on ancient coins and utensils and was associated with the goddess of darkness Athena, personifying strength and wisdom. The ancient inhabitants of Greece believed that if you meet an owl, a solution to the most difficult problem will come to mind. The bird flying over the Greek army before the battle gave them hope of victory. The Romans considered it an attribute of Minerva, who brought good ideas at night.
Painted with a brush and brushstroke.
