What does Noctua mean?
The little owl, Athene noctua, is the symbol of the Greek goddess Athene, who represents wisdom, science and strategy. She has a marked preference for the most clever among the Greek heroes, like Odysseus, who endure their adventures by the use of savvy consideration instead of mere force. The owl has always symbolised intelligence and prudence, and with its manlike face, it is the emblem of attentiveness and communication. We at Noctua imitate its attributes of calm and accurate observation in the dark, its soundless flight as well as the effective, economical use of its powers and precise attack.
