This simply elegant eagle is very typical of the traditional approach to fetish carving made highly collectable by Travis Nieto. He is carved from Picasso marble and has inlaid turquoise eyes. Eagles are the protective and hunting guardian animals of the sky.

This majestic eagle is carved from a large slab of Picasso marble and has piercing eyes of inlaid turquoise. He is skillfully carved and accurately depicts the feathers, the facial structure, even his claws. This eagle’s stance serves to enhance his majestic form and demeanor – just look at that beak and face.

The Zuni associate the eagle with teaching, loyalty and integrity and believe the eagle is the spirit connection to the great Divine.
