A striking gray, golden ocher, brown & cream streaked Picasso marble bald eagle with a white head carved standing on a rounded arrowhead created from the same stone. Carved by Jeff Shetima, the eagle has dark mother-of-pearl and penn shell oval inlaid eyes and has a beak carved slightly open revealing a tongue carved in the round! Jeff has inlaid his micro inlaid healing heartline on the back of the neck - running 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.
