Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, craft, and war strategy, was often depicted with a companion owl. It’s said that because the owl could turn its head 360o as well as see through the darkness, it was able to illuminate Athena’s “blind side,” allowing her to see beyond illusion to the hidden truth. This is the essence of wisdom and the basis for the owl as a symbol of wisdom in the west today.
Looking 360o and illuminating your blind side so you can formulate a solid strategy is also the essence of my work. The wisdom of the owl is the perfect image to symbolize my approach.
