This tiny eagle watched with sharp eyes for messages or prey. There is an offering bundle of a turquoise arrowhead attached with tiny pieces of coral and turquoise to his back. Erik has paid very careful attention as he carved each detail of this tiny, but magnificent creature.
The Zuni associate the eagle with teaching, loyalty and integrity and believe the eagle is the spirit connection to the great divine. The Eagle is the protective and hunting animal of the sky. It represents a connection to the heavens as it flies between heaven and earth. It is carried as a prey fetish when hunting rabbits and small game to ensure a good hunt.
