This Ocean Eagle in Flight comes to us from a collection we found during our move that we purchased 15 years ago! While it looks like the eagles that Delvin Leekya carves today, the name on this one is Deysee. It has turquoise eyes inlaid onto shell. We especially love the spiral on the bottom!
Size: 1.5" Diameter x 1.375" H
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.
