Borrowed from a post by an on-line friend.
Granted I have a soft spot for all things owl in many forms. Apparently this image is of a plaque on a building in Cambridge.
Two dates might be someone's life from 1851-1934.
The owl clutches a scroll in its' claw - often a sign of learning, accomplishment sometimes a degree. It's perched on a mortar bowl with accompanying pestle. Then there's the 'ribbon' with necessary Latin tag-line.
Curious...hoping it'll be made clear eventually.
