Found throughout Greek art and architecture, the "meander" motif, also called the Greek key, is one of the most important symbols in ancient Greece. The unending pattern first appeared in the Geometric period (900-700 B.C.) and historians believe that it symbolized eternity and unity. Others have interpreted that it symbolizes the antagonistic and forever entwined relationship between mortals and the gods. The pattern has continued through the centuries, and can still be seen in neoclassical architecture around the world.

Colombian Owl Wall Clock
Colombian Owl Wall Clock
(Based on 6 reviews)
Category: Home & Garden/Home Décor/Home Accents

This charming owl clock with its tail feather pendulum has an ancient connection to the mythology of Colombia’s precolonial Muisca culture. Huitaca was the goddess of pleasure, drink, and dance. Her husband, Bochica, was the god of morality. This unlikely match ended when Bochica, frustrated with his wife’s antics, turned her into an owl and commanded her to hold up the sky. Artisans in Cota, Colombia, craft this bright accent piece from hand-painted metal. Let its whimsy remind you to enjoy life’s pleasures, in moderation.
