In Argentina, the owl – called “lechuza” in Spanish – symbolizes wisdom and good fortune. This indigenous owl watercolor (above) was given to me by a shopkeeper in Buenos Aires. I love the way it’s both ancient and abstract.
Carved of palo verde wood, this owl also comes from the north of Argentina. She looks to me like a philospher.
This owl necklace (below) comes from the trendy shop ‘Rapsodia‘ in Palermo Viejo, Buenos Aires. Like the city, she’s funky and whimsical.
