Majestic EAGLE BOWL from the Nuuh-chah-Nulth (Nitinath) First Nations

Artist Harry T. Williams

This is an older piece, dated 2004, VERY powerful expression, the carving is superb!!! Have a close look at the details, how the feet of the eagle are carved out on the inside of the bowl really proofs excellens craftsmanship. the inlays are all hollowed out, not added on top, again, in total there are 12 pieces of Abalone inlaid. So much work was put into this piece! It's carved out of solid cedar wood which darkened a little over the years, just adding to the character of the bowl. It does show som tiny signs of gentle aging/handling, have a close look, it's a real, authentic and beautiful piece of Indigenous Art

Measurements: 12" x 7 1/2" x 6" (30 x 19 x 15 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.
