Marble Bird, Eagle by Melvin Sandoval

$ 180.00

A tan and golden ocher veined marble eagle carved in a new style by Melvin Sandoval. The wings are thrust upward creating a contrast to the downwards movement of the beak. Melvin has added a fantastic bundle to the top of the eagle's back with sinew featuring a pipestone arrowhead with four azurite/malachite beads positioned on top. 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.
