Owls have always had high symbolic value in every culture. The ancient Egyptians associated them with the realm of the dead, but in antiquity they also accompanied Athena the goddess of wisdom. In the Middle Ages the silent, night time hunters were viewed as heralds of impending doom. Conversely, in Japan owls have always been popular as protectors against evil and bringers of luck.
