Number Eight Mine Turquoise Bird, Eagle With Dragonfly by Terry Aisetewa - Zuni Fetish

$ 200.00

A Number Eight Mine turquoise eagle bust with a dragonfly protecting the village. Carved by Terry Aisetewa, the eagle takes a prominent position at the top - with one turquoise inlaid eye, incised feathers & also wearing a detailed 3 feather headdress on the back of its head. Below the eagle is the village and to the eagle's right side is a dragonfly carved in high relief with turquoise inlaid eyes. Below the dragonfly's tail is a Zuni prayer bowl filled with 4 corn cobs. 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. The eagle also has incredible vision so eagle medicine is to look at the comprehensive whole picture of all situations.
