Description: The Owl (An Ulchabhán)
Inspired by our natural landscape, the Native Collection limited edition framed OWL is illustrated by our sister Deirdre. The original artwork is laser engraved onto home-grown, hardwood flaming beech, which boasts a beautifully unique natural grain. No two pieces are the same.
Celtic tradition connects the owl with an announcement of death (more likely symbolic of transition or change). The owl is sometimes believed to represent the Cailleach, the primordial Celtic hag goddess of harvest and winter who arrives during the festival of Samhain and rules the dark half of the year. One of the many Gaelic names for the owl is Cauilleach-oidhche (Crone of the Night). The Cailleach appears after the autumnal equinox when the earth is dying. She is the goddess of death, and the owl’s call was often sensed as an omen that someone would die.
