White Marble Bird, Eagle by Melvin Sandoval

$ 160.00

A white marble eagle carved by the abstract artist; Melvin Sandoval. Melvin has carved the eagle with geometric wings - that contrast with the softened forms of the face. There is a simple offering bundle strapped to the top of the eagle's wings with sinew featuring three Sonoran turquoise beads surrounded by coral heishi. The Zuni believe the creator made the eagle to be a teacher for mankind - the eagle is the guardian and master of the sky - revered for its power, strength and dynamic grace. The eagle has incredible vision so eagle medicine is to look at the comprehensive whole picture of all situations.
Artist: Melvin Sandoval (signed)
