Besides the fact that they are beautiful and spectacular examples of creation, the owl represents wisdom.  The light of Hanukah, reflecting a wisdom so deep it flows through on the level of simplicity, of light.  When I made this sculpture I saw the little owl was "sitting" in front of the lights of...
