Incredibly detailed and very unique piece of art from the Haida Nation

EAGLE inlaid, hand carved, designed and signed by Haida First Nation artist Donavon Gates.

Donavon also is a master in Argilite carving and you can clearly see it even in this piece. It's so detailed with a lot of attention on expression. The rim is stained in a soft brown which gives the eagle a nice frame in this 1 1/2" thick piece of cedar. The eagle is inlaid with tiny little pieces of Abalone (Mother of Pearl). 

Measurements: 15" x 7" x 1 1/2" (38 cm x 18 cm x 4 cm)

Meaning: 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
