Wise or creepy? If you showed an owl to someone right now, how would they react? Many would agree owls are sort of creepy creatures. So why do they symbolize wisdom. Ask any elder and they will say owls were often used as references to reflect wisdom. Owls are creepy yet right now they are just a fashion statement. Go to any urban outfitters and you will see owl necklaces, earings, rings, you know name anything owl, they have it. The definition in which you define something comes out of your cultural time. Elders think they are wise, the young think they are creepy, and the middle think its a fashion statement. One simple animal can represent 3 different generations. The era you grow up in really does depict your thoughts.
