This owl is at the foot of reclining statue in the lapidary section of Blois Castle but that is all I know.

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.

    Judging from the expression on the owl’s face, I think he just got kicked by the foot !

    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.
