Owl for Japanese is "Fukurou". Some loves the owl because "Fuku" reminds us of "Happiness"and collect the owl goods like sculpture or paintings of owl to wish their good fortune.
Also, the owl is thought of the gods of the wisedom. We have a famous cram school called Dr.fukurou school. I have seen so many oals which are drawn and painted mostly pretty.
