Owl inspired Pablo Picasso

From a resort town Antibes Pablo Picasso brought with him to Paris a little owl, which was found in the Chateau Grimaldi with a broken foot. Picasso cured it and then kept in a cage in the kitchen of his apartment in Paris on the Great Augustinian street, along with pigeons and a canary (according to Memories of Francoise Gilot). Large round eyes of owl reminded Picasso his own, but trail superstitions attributed to owls, inspired in him a mystical feeling toward the bird. He painted it, created sculpture, made a great variety of owl ceramics. There are also a few photos in which Picasso was captured with his owl, and where he was depicted with his owl art.
