Beautiful and very impressive !

Another gorgeous piece of native Art at it's best by Alfred Robertson from Kingcome Inlet, a member of the Kwakiulth First Nation. 

Alfred just loves his Ravens and his Eagles. This is a great example of his talent and highest quality craftsmenship. The Eagle is richly decorated with the traditional cedar bark, the face of the Eagle is adorned with cedar rope. The mask is sitting on a natural wooden base but can also be hung up on the wall - If you would prefer wall hanging, please let us know and we will prepare it for it. Alfred is carving these Eagles in various sizes - this is one of his larger examples - very powerful, great presence - the wood, showing the grain is just beautiful. The painting clean and the carving, just excellent! The beak is articulated - opens and closes through thin lining, makes a beautiful clapping sound.....

Measurements: Total height incl. cedar bark: 27" (60 cm), the eagle head itself is 16" x 6 1/2" x 6" (41 x 17 x 15 cm), the base is solid 12" x 11" x 3" (31 x 28 x 7 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.
