4.25" Set of 3 Owl Family Wooden Russian Nesting Dolls
Have you ever wondered why wisdom is associated with owls Owls represent wisdom and knowledge in many cultures, because their nocturnal vigilance is often associated with that of the studious scholar or wise elder. The owl is sacred to the Greek goddess of learning, Athena and is even depicted as a symbol of status, intelligence and of course, wealth. Native Americans associated the meaning of the owl with wisdom, foresight, and keeper of sacred knowledge. According to one Christian tradition, owls represent the wisdom of Christ, which appeared amid the darkness of the unconverted.
Owls have perhaps the quietest wing stroke of any bird, making them excellent hunters. They are extremely sensitive to sound, and able to hear noises ten times fainter than humans. Their faces are shaped like two satellite dishes which funnel sounds into their ears.
The inimitable painting found on all of our nesting dolls makes this matryoshka a perfect thoughtful gift, a seasonal or year-round decoration, a special addition to an existing collection - or all of the above!
