In the western world owls are commonly believed to be a symbol of knowledge and wisdom. In Greek mythology the owl was said to represent or accompany Athena the virgin goddess of wisdom.
The venerable alloy of pewter is made of 92% tin with copper and antimony to harden it and enhance casting. At St Justin the distinguished tradition of casting pewter lives on. High quality pewter ingots are fused in a crucible and the molten metal is poured into rubber moulds created from the original master design.
After cooling and linishing, the items are hand-polished and assembled by craftsmen.
