Picasso Marble Bird, Bald Eagle by Jeff Shetima

$ 675.00

A fantastic gray, golden ocher, brown & cream colored Picasso marble bald eagle carved by Jeff Shetima with an outstanding naturally colored cream head created from the same stone. The eagle stands on a rounded arrowhead for added stability and has a beak carved slightly open - revealing a tongue carved in the round - how he did this, we don't know! Jeff has inlaid his micro healing heart line on the back of the neck with the last long mother-of-pearl strip joining up with the eagle's cream colored head. The remaining inlaid heart line runs down the center of the back - inlaid with bits of clam shell, jet, gold-lip, turquoise & coral to name most. The eagle is one of the six animals venerated by the Zuni. The eagle is the prey God of the celestial heavens. The eagle represents conscious enlightenment and clarity. The Zuni believe the creator made the eagle to be a teacher for mankind - and due to their ability to fly the highest; they can send our prayers to the great divine.
