Before gods, goddesses, demons and nocturnal monsters of the netherworld
were depicted as humans, they were almost always shown in some type of
animal form. This ancient network of immortal symbolism we can witness
today with one of these secret deities that has been depicted throughout the
course of human history as the bird of night, known as the owl.
The symbology of the owl has almost always represented evil omens,
demons, illness, disease and death to many interrelated ancient cultures such
as the Hittites, Sumerians, Egyptians, Ethiopians, Africans, Phoenicians
(Hebrews), Greeks, Romans, Europeans, Arabs, Hindus, Indians and Latinos. A
nocturnal bird of prey that to them was not a symbol of wisdom, but the
creature who disturbs their sleep and is the "angel of death."
The Egyptian name for the owl is Mulak or Moloch represented by the letter
symbolism of M (m) because its name began with M, and the eyes or horns of
this secret deity looks just like the letter m.

The people who some call the Sumerians, called the owl the ukuku. An
example is from the Sumerian verse: “May the ukuku, the bird of depression,
make its nest in your gateways, established for the Land!,” and “The bird of
destroyed cities . . . . . . a nest. The sleep-bird, bird of heart’s sorrow.” In
ancient Syria, the owl is found recorded in the eighth-century treaty in the
Aramaic

130-31).Aramaic inscription from Sefire. The word for ‘owl’ in Hittite is hupupiau (Puhvel 1991: 3. . The Hittites appear to be the first race of people to depict this deity as an owl like bird that has some of the characteristics of an owl with large eyes. but looks like it is a different creature than the owl which I intuitively suspect it always has been. in which the owl serves as an emblem of desolation.

 Some of the world's first symbolism of this owl creature of heart’s sorrow and desolation shown above was found at the Hittite capital of Carchemish. Atu-ba. but I find them to be the most . Ata-ma and Atta-ma (" the place cf Ata ") were names of towns near Carchemish mentioned in the geographical list of Thothmes III.Athi-ni. At-banti. Khati or Hethei). These ancient artist depictions of the deity may seem to be done by amateurs or to be crude representations of the owl.They did not name this deity hupupiau after the owl. but called this strange owl looking creature Athi (Atti. Aitua (Aituwa). Ata-kal.

the Trojans called the owl deity by the name of Ate.alike deity. Trojan 'Ate' and Greek 'Athena' would be the words we use today to describe how we human consume food with the English words like eat. Their cousins. who then later became identified as the Greek Goddess known as Athena. and in a future article on the science of this ancient owl look. These truths become evident in the epic tales of the Greeks which I will explain briefly below. Ishtar becomes an owl in the hand of Elkunirsha (El-creator-of-the-earth). In the Hittite myth of Elkunirsha and Athi or Asertu.' .or to be crude representations of the owl. but I find them to be the most accurate of the true deity that they were honoring in this symbolism. they would start taking on human form. As time moved forward like in the era of the Phoenicians and Greeks. These ancient names such as the Hittite 'Athi'. This owl deity who lives within us all was directly connected to this alchemical process that we know of as eating. Here is the beautiful Greek Athena who is the same as the Etruscan Goddess Minerva with her sacred owl symbolis-'m. and ate.

.Other versions of this name that can be found for such goddesses as Astarte. Atargatis. Ashtaroth. Athtar. Ashtoreth. Atar. Ishtar and Isis to name a few.

  These various representations of this secret deity then gave rise to the English pagan goddess of fertility and spring known as Eostre. This symbology was always associated with this deity due to its ability to lay eggs within its host. the hare. and the Germanic Ostara. THE PHOENICIANS AND THE OWL . The legend further evolves from the owl symbology to that of the rabbit or more appropriately. and I suspect as time went by the evil associations in the old world in regards to the owl had caused this legend to evolve into the Easter holiday we have today with a rabbit who lays speckled and colorful eggs that remain hidden to us. Eggs that we have to search for in order to claim oUr surprise hidden on the inside.

MORE HISTORY ON THE ANCIENT SYMBOLISM OF THE OWL The owl symbolism later migrated to Italy and the Romans with the Phoenician tribe of mariners from Crete known by the name of the Italian Umbrians who were said to survive the deluge." Sidon on Crete was at one time the main headquarters of the Phoenician maritime trade and commerce. the unlucky fowl. against the prohibition: Ill-omened in his form. Their chief deity was Ashtart who the Israelitish prophets called "the abomination of the Sidonians. relates how the demon of the underworld Ascalaphus was transformed by Ceres into an owl. owls are included in the list of birds that were forbidden to be eaten. and was supposed to destroy children if they were not watched. of the Goddess of materialism and wealth. plates.
