CAN MUSSOL, HISTORY OF THE NAME
According to the ancestral ideology, an owl is the union of the three worlds: underworld, visible and celestial world. Belonging to the Moon. Messenger of secrets and omens. Carrier of wisdom, clairvoyance, freedom and changes; as well as a new state of consciousness.
The Greek culture associates it with the Goddess Athena. The owl becomes his sacred animal. You can see Greek coins with its image. For the ancient Egyptians, Celts and Hindus, it is a Totem that provides protection to souls. Native Americans also associate it with wisdom and foresight: "Guardian of Sacred Knowledge". In the Middle Ages, it was believed that owls were transformed witches and now both the tribes of West Africa and the Australian Aborigines use their image as companions of shamans, sorcerers and seers in their healing rituals.
