Owl Gift Bag
Posted on 22 February 2012
In early Indian folklore, Owls represent wisdom and helpfulness, and have powers of prophecy.
This theme recurs in Aesop’s fables and in Greek myths and beliefs.
By the Middle Ages in Europe, the Owl had become the associate of witches and the inhabitant of dark, lonely and profane places, a foolish but feared spectre.
An Owl’s appearance at night, when people are helpless and blind, linked them with the unknown, its eerie call filled people with foreboding and apprehension: a death was imminent or some evil was at hand.
During the eighteenth century the zoological aspects of Owls were detailed through close observation, reducing the mystery surrounding these birds.
With superstitions dying out in the twentieth century - in the West at least – the Owl has returned to its position as a symbol of wisdom.
In parts of northern England it is good luck to see an Owl.
If you want to create an Owl Gift Bag, first you have to make the paper gift bag itself, then the topper for it.
