The Cherokee Owl - Large Native American Owl Painting for Sale - FREE UK DELIVERY
The Cherokee tribe, which mostly inhabited the American southeast, considered Earth a flat disc suspended between the planes of a higher world and an underworld. On the higher plane, both animal and human spirits watched over those on Earth. This illustrates the significance Cherokee spirituality places on animals, including owls. According to Cherokee beliefs, owls and other animals possess intelligent spirits and must exist alongside people in a harmonious and balanced fashion.
The owl holds a special place in Cherokee life as owls were animal spirits of the upper world, some Cherokee shamans believed these birds served as spiritual consultants. Similarly, some Cherokee peoples associate the owl with medicine, viewing the owl's link to the spirit world as potentially medicinal, or helpful to those who are ill.
