There is no mistaking this carving by Darren Boone for a bald eagle. It is carved of jet, white marble, with a mother of pearl tail, and a gold-lip mother of pearl beak. It has an inlaid sunface with coral, turquoise, gold-lip mother of pearl, and jet. We love the inlaid jet eyes that appear to see all.
Size: 2.125" H x 1.75" L x .25" W
The eagle is the most sacred of all the raptors since it sees the furthest and flies the highest. It is considered as a messenger to take our prayers to the Creator. In Zuni Pueblo, eagles are also the guardians of the sky world.
Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal. Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
