Owls, Protectors Against Evil...

Last month while at the Renegade Craft Fair, Anna (who also writes for this blog) turned to me and said something to the extent, "Years from now the art history books will mark the period of 2005-2009 by the abundance of owl images." Owls are everywhere! Jewelry, t-shirts, baby bibs, notebooks, home decor. There is an owl on the logo for the Renegade Craft Fair! In thinking about the the owl cookie jar my grandma Ruth owns, and the owl lamp with glowing eyes that has sat on the bar in the basement of my grandparent's house for at least thirty years, I must trace this trend as a re-emergence of something from the 1970's.

Owls are sort of cool looking, but what does the owl mean?
