Unusual, gorgeou and high quality piece of Indigenous Art

by the First Nations artist Thomas Jones, a member of the Snuneymuxw Nation, originiating from Vancouver island, BC, Canada

Thomas used beautiful yellow cedar for the feather and red cedar for the base. The carving lines are deep and the stain truly accentuates the natural grain of the cedar. The feather can be taken out of the base. Thomas signed underneath the base which has the shape of a whale fin and the eagle's head carved deep into it. It's nicely polished so that the feather really has a nice shine to it. The back of the piece shows the spine of the feather. It really proofs masterful craftsmanship. Have a close look

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.
