Owls are reproduced in ceramics since the most ancient times, as they are highly symbolic creatures. They were often functional objects such as a vase or a bookend : a bottle of water in the shape of an owl was often kept on the night table because the owl was thought capable of ward off evil spirits. The owl is also a symbol of knowledge, wisdom, perspicacity and erudition :  in Greek mythology, a little owl traditionally represents or accompanies Athena , the virgin goddess of wisdom, or Minerva, her incarnation in Roman mythology.
