Leopard Marble Bird, Eagle by Chris Sandoval

$ 185.00

A black, gray and brown streaked leopard marble eagle carved upon request by Chris Sandoval - this is only our second eagle received from this fantastic carver. The eagle looks up at the viewer with turquoise inlaid eyes and has an offering bundle wrapped around the eagle's girth with sinew allowing the melon shell, turquoise and amethyst beads to sit on top of the bird's back - with pen shell heishi surrounding the beads on both sides. The eagle is one of the six animals venerated by the Zuni. 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.
