“Hoo” is OTUS?

OTUS Group’s namesake, the owl (scientific name: OTUS), has been a universal symbol of wisdom, vision, insight and intelligence for thousands of years. Revered both for its beauty and its protective nature, the owl has taken its prominent and unmistakable place in art, culture, politics, and commerce.

The owl first became an important symbol of commerce within the booming metropolis of ancient Greece. It was said that owls, favourite birds of Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, kept a watchful eye over all transactions because their “inner light” and 270-degree vision allowed them to see opportunities and avoid dangers that others could not. Their influence was so powerful that an image of an owl was placed on one side of Greek coins with Athena on the other.
