by SARAH ROBERTSON, a very well known Master artist from the Kwagiulth First Nation. Sarah is a very kind and gentle soul and I always very much enjoy meeting with her and her lovely large family.

Measurements: the Rattle itself is 12" long, 3 1/2" high, 1 1/2" wide (30 x 9 x 4 cm), 10" high when in Stand, can be taken of stand easy... 

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.
