Create and Craft a Colorful 3D Owl Card


Owls have long been viewed by many folks as a source of knowledge and wisdom. In folk law they are found in Myths and Legends as creatures that symbolise wisdom and truth.

These days, people still refer to owls as being wise and knowledgeable.

In times past, because owls are nocturnal creatures, people considered them to be mysterious and aloof.

The people of ancient Athens regarded the owl as knowledgeable, even having the ability to offer strategic advice, possessing special powers of wisdom.  Because the owl is only awake during the night, people believed that the owl, due to its acute eyesight, saw the truth when in the dark.  Some people believed the owl saw all truth and that nothing could be hidden.  Others also believed that spiritually, the owl was the source of all seeing.

There are many different types of owls throughout the world and they are often depicted in photos as flying past the moon at night.

The owl is a wonderful creature that quietly and stealthily glides through the air at night, grabbing and picking up its prey without a sound.
