The “Owl Maiden”. She is intrisically linked to my Swan Keeper and I could not finish out my show without a barn owl, as they have long been my closest animal guide. I envisioned this lady to be a faerie maiden who lives deep in a magical wood. She can shape-shift into a barn owl and fly into the world of humans when she needs to.
Owls are the ruler of the night and seer of souls. The owl is honored as the keeper of spirits who had passed from one plane to another. Often myth indicates the owl accompanying a spirit to the underworld; winging it’s newly freed soul from the physical world into the realm of spirit. They are the bringer of wisdom, revealer of secrets and omens, intuition and clairvoyance.
My maiden’s barn owl friend has a necklace with a key around his neck. He is bringing her the key to some ancient wisdom, it’s for you to decide what that could be.
