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)
