Owls held symbolic significance in Roman culture and were often associated with wisdom, knowledge, and protection. In the mosaic, the owl is depicted with its distinctive features, including its large round eyes, and sharp beak. The mosaicist have used small colored tesserae to create a mosaic pattern that brings the owl to life, capturing its unique characteristics and capturing its essence. Roman mosaics featuring owls could be found in various settings, including private residences, public buildings, and religious spaces. Owls were often associated with the goddess Minerva (or Athena in Greek mythology), who was the goddess of wisdom, strategy, and crafts.Image ID#: 24066 / Category: Arts / Price: 499$
