Designed and decorated by hand. Beautiful ceramics from Sicily in Caltagirone
Sicilians are fond of owls and many potters love to model ceramic owls which are known as symbols of wisdom and clairvoyance.
In Greek/Roman mythology the owl was a sacred figure, dedicated to the goddess of wisdom Athena / Minerva. The eyes and the beak of the Civetta follow the line of the letter φ (fi), the Greek alphabetical symbol of philosophy and later of the golden section. This letter therefore combines harmony, beauty and love for knowledge and research.
The ancient Greeks and the Romans honored them and what they believed to be their magic “inner light”.
These ceramics are to be used for decoration purpose only. Their beauty and their strong similarity to original Renaissance ceramics is in fact due to the use of traditional colours and glazes.
