Shell Bird, Eagle Double by Bryston Bowannie

$ 75.00

Bryston Bowannie has carved a double eagle from one cowrie shell with turquoise inlaid eyes. This newer version was directly acquired from the artist, has a bundle for each bird and now stands on its side or vertically upright. The bundles are cleverly attached to each eagle's back with drilled holes and sinew and feature a penn shell & turquoise arrowhead - one on each, along with turquoise & branch coral beads and penn shell heishi. The Zuni believe the creator made the eagle to be a teacher for mankind - the eagle is the guardian & master of the sky - revered for its power, strength & dynamic grace. The eagle has incredible vision so eagle medicine is to look at the comprehensive whole picture of all situations.
