EAGLE and Chief Sculpture

Meaning in the artists own words: "Eagle and Chief Sculpture, and two small eagles on the claws, the chief wanted to transform into an eagle after he passed on"

Please have a look at the Eagle's head - it's looking to the left. That is very unusual, and very difficult to do. Usually these kind of carvings are looking straight ahead. But Silas is highly talented. Have a look at the inlays all around the piece, Silas is carving so clean and in such great detail, it's just beautiful to see. He used a black paint with a very slight sparkle in it and very vibrant colors all through the piece. It's marvelous!
