I just remembered an idea that I have been having for some time: an owl. There
are two aspects to an owl:
- it can be made to look cute/silly
- it is a kind of a symbol for wisdom/intelligence (good for a math library).
It remains so even if we make it look cute/silly.
Think of Archimedes, Merlin's pet owl in the disney movie.
