Wearing owls in your hair makes you wise

For some of the pieces I made for Small Wonders, I couldn't resist making up some Woody truths.  I found these bizarrely shaped wooden pieces in the wood shop on North Road and decided I liked them.  I started drawing a woman with a bun hair style but suddenly there was an owl hiding in the hair.  And then other.  And so the first Small Wonders Myth was born:  in Portugal in 1900s women would wear owls in their hair to make them wise.
