Caulfield Country Boards - The Native Collection - The OwlRegular price €50,00
Description: The Owl (An Ulchabhán)
Inspired by our natural landscape, the Native Collection is tableware that has been lovingly hand-manufactured using home-grown, hardwood flaming beech. Adorned with original artwork by Deirdre, it combines traditions both old and new to portray the beauty of Ireland.
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.
Every arch shaped OWL board has an attractive, unique, natural grain.
Presentation: This item comes in an eco friendly, recyclable gift box.
