Ce hibou se trouve au pied d’un homme couché sur le côté dans la section lapidaire du château de Blois mais je n’en sais pas plus.

I think you’re right! He does have a somewhat smashed expression. At a guess I’d say the sandalled foot belongs to a soldier (dressed in Roman or maybe Greek style). The owl is associated with Athena, one of the deities who protected soldiers. Thank you Susan! Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
