Pierrot the Owl
This is Pierrot. He is an ancient spirit animal, who started life as a cave drawing probably somewhere near Lascaux France. He has been travelling the world in various incarnations, but spent a long time as a decorative motif of the Heugenots in Holland before immigrating to the Americas. Pierrot was also spotted amongst the Indians who guided Lewis and Clark through the frontier. Most recently he has taken up residence in Brooklyn, New York.
Pierrot, like many ancient spirits has dual aspects. He represents the yin and yang, birth and destruction, hope and fear, blah blah. As a spirit guide, he also reflects the entirety of the spirit and not just the noblest aspects. He can be excited and engaged or hungover and smoking a cigarette. Sometimes you will catch him doing both at once. He is mostly a solitary beast.
