....and....shipping is FREE to US/Canada
Beautiful 3D sculpture of the EAGLE with human spirit in it's tail
Have a close look at the carving - so clean, deep and detailed. The expression of the Eagle truly is powerful, strong and rich while only using polish. The grain of the wood including one knot truly gives it so much character. It's signed underneath.
Measurements: 12 1/2" x 6 1/2" x 3" (32 x 16.5 x 7.5 cm)
Meaning: The Eagle symbolizes grace, power and great intellect. It is a sacred and noble creature representing power and prestige to the First Nations people of the Northwest Coast. It symbolizes wisdom and has a special and direct connection to the creator. Eagles mate for life and are therefore also seen as a symbol of lasting love and dedication. It is told that the Eagle end their own life in despair when the mate is lost. Eagle feathers are used in the most important ceremonies, a display of respect, courage, Chieftainship and wisdom. The Eagle is the ruler of sky.
