Pipestone Bird, Eagle by Derrick Kaamasee

$ 96.00

A large plump pipestone eagle carved by Derrick Kaamawee looking at the viewer with big turquoise inlaid eyes as it gives out a loud peal call - the response an eagle makes when humans approach. The eagle has feathers incised in a creative fashion all over its body excluding the beak and is perched on a small base made from the same stone - allowing the legs to be carved in the round and the talons and tail - carved in both low and high relief, respectively. The eagle is the prey God of the celestial heavens - he 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.
