Being interested in art and symbolism and after having a great time in the museums of Berlin, I decided to blog various symbols associated with wisdom as I come upon them. My choice will be dictated by chance (when I see one), my own taste and cultural background (English/British/European/female of a certain age), but it will for me and maybe for others an interesting project.

I have chosen an owl as my first picture as this is a symbol of wisdom in Europe. It is the bird of Athena the Greek Goddess of Wisdom.
