In most cultures, Owls are seen as the messengers of the underworld or other realms of existence. Some cultures view them as bad omens, while others view seeing them in nature as one of the highest blessings. They are symbols of change, transformation, the ability to see through the darkness, and divine wisdom. The red and white mushrooms that adorn this tiny owl statue are called Amanita Muscaria, one of the most popular mushrooms in folklore due to them being seen as "teacher mushrooms" in many different shamanic cultures. Open your heart to wisdom.
