(English) What is Earth?
There are multiple treasures to be found in Nature, although perhaps the most precious of all, often unnoticed as it lies at such a “low” level, is the earth itself. Yes, that which the majority of urban dwellers do not see in the asphalt of our daily lives.
The earth is a source of food and was venerated as such in megalithic times. That was when the Mediterranean was embarking on the art of agriculture. Man tended the land as his own and depicted it in ways that reminded him of its enormous value.
Could this be the image that led to the Owl being adopted as a symbol and conceived as the Bird of Knowledge?
