A small 15ct gold Georgian seal with a carved carnelian intaglio base of an owl in a tree. The owl was the keeper of spirits who had passed from one plane to another. Often myth indicates the owl accompanying a spirit to the underworld. Literally winging it’s newly freed soul from the physical world into the realm of spirit, so this could have been a memorial seal. The owl also represents wisdom and deep insight.
