The Roman Baths temple, built in 1AD, was dedicated to Minerva, the Roman goddess of wisdom, whose symbol was an owl. Minerva’s owl of wisdom can be seen carved into the Temple pediment displayed at the Roman Baths.
Mogers Drewett Solicitors sponsored the painting of the Herschel Owl which celebrates the night-time discoveries of brother and sister William and Caroline Herschel. See the owl outside their Queen Sq office in Bath between 22 June and 6 October 2018. Watch a hauntingly beautiful 5minute video of artist Lois Cordelia at work HERE.
