We are proud to offer this exquisite hand-blown and expertly cut vase
depicting an owl motif. The pattern is a combination of classical and
modern lines. Upon closer inspection you will find great detail. For
example, within the eyes of the owl, more owls are etched. Since most
owls are nocturnal creatures, their eyes are very good at capturing
light. This weighty 7kg cut vase captures light and reflects it in a way
that only quality crystal can do.
In Ancient European and modern Western culture the owl is associated
with wisdom. This link goes back at least as far as Ancient Greece,
where Athens, noted for art and scholarship, and Athena, Athens’ patron
goddess and the goddess of wisdom, had the owl as a symbol. Every cut on
this beautiful crystal vase has involved much thought and wisdom, as
well as high artistry.
The veneration of the owl as a goddess, among other birds, goes back to
the culture of Old Europe, long pre-dating Indo-European cultures. In
Hinduism, Lakshmi, the wife and energy (shakti) of a major god, Vishnu,
uses an owl as her mount, just as a cavalier uses a horse. Lakshmi is
the Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity. The graceful lines
of this stunning piece of crystal art capture the majesty and myth of
ancient goddesses. This captivating cut crystal creation is a perfect
example of man’s want and need to make things of high beauty that
reflect the very best of what the world has to offer.

In Native American culture, the Ojibwe tribes, as well as their
Aboriginal Canadian counterparts, used owls as a symbol of very high
status of spiritual leaders of their spirituality. Also, the Pawnee

their realms. The owl has long since been a magical symbol for mankind.
