Fossil Walrus and Sterling Silver Owl Pendant

The owl enjoys a rich and varied mythology. A specific breed of owl, Athene noctua, is said to have been the Greek goddess Athena’s mascot thanks to its wisdom and serious demeanor. The owl has long been associated with wisdom, and also with prophecy, protection, shamanic powers, and, of course, with the mysteries of the night. Our fossil walrus and sterling silver owl pendant highlights the owl’s natural beauty and distinctive head.

The Zuni tribe believed that an owl feather placed near a sleeping baby would help him slumber safely through the night. The owl is nocturnal, hunting its prey with an uncanny stealth and vision. An owl’s eyes are tubular rather than eyeball-shaped, making them effectively like a pair of phenomenal night-vision binoculars. Its feathers are velvety soft, and they slip past one another during flight, which makes the owl’s approach almost silent.
