Welcome, Ariel Very Happy

I've checked out what Google offered, some interesting info, no doubt, but perhaps you have more info about owl role there - can you share, please?

Thanks Very Happy

PS. That really big owl statue is something I'd love to see in person, no doubt, but again I can only dream of it Wink

Here is some information about the Bohemian club and the Bohemian Grove, and its relationship to the owl.

The Bohemian Club (founded in 1874) is a private men's art club based in San Francisco, California, with a membership of many prominent local and global leaders. In its diverse membership, and ranging from artists and musicians to leading businessmen, it was modelled on the prominent Century Club, based in New York.

Bohemian Grove is a 11 km2(2700-acre) campground located at 20601 Bohemian Ave, Monte Rio, California 95462[1] belonging to a private San Francisco-based men's fine arts club known as the Bohemian Club. Every year (since 1899) Bohemian Grove is the location of a two-week (covering three weekends) encampment, beginning in the middle of July, of some of the most powerful men in the world.

Since the founding of the club, the Bohemian Grove's symbol has been the owl, long held as a representative of wisdom. A forty-foot concrete owl stands at the head of the lake in the Grove and, since 1929, has served as the site of the yearly "Cremation of Care" ceremony. The club's motto, Weaving Spiders Come Not Here, is taken from the second scene of Act 2 from A Midsummer Night's Dream; it signifies that the Grove is limited to exchanging friendship and the free sharing of common passion, summarized in the term, "the Bohemian Spirit."
