Owl of Athena
Recycled Greek coins
In Greek mythology, a little owl (Athene noctua) traditionally represents or accompanies Athena, the virgin goddess of wisdom, or Minerva, her syncretic incarnation in Roman mythology. Because of such association, the bird—often referred to as the “owl of Athena” or the “owl of Minerva“—has been used as a symbol of knowledge, wisdom
This lovely little coin looks even more handsome when it has been hand filed, polished and set as a cufflink. A pair of old Greek one drachma coins given a fantastic new life as a a pair of timeless, wearable cufflinks with a fantastic history and associated symbolism.
The high quality, hard wearing stainless steel cufflink base works beautifully with the original old Greek coin.
