This is a hand-carved Eagle Feather with a painted Eagle design by Kwak'wakawakw artist Sandy Johnson. Sandy is a member of the Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation. This feather has been hand-carved in yellow cedar and painted in orange, red and black acrylic.
The Eagle is known as “The master of skies” and is a symbol of great significance. He is believed to be the creature with the closest relationship with the creator. Soaring to great heights, he can travel between the physical and the spiritual world. He is said to be a messenger to the creator. If an Eagle was seen during a Prayer session it was a sign of having a prayer accepted. If a prayer needed immediate attention from the creator, an eagle feather would be held up towards the sky.
The feather comes with the pictured stand. Including the base, this piece is about 35.5 centimeters or 14 inches long and 12 cm or 4 3/4 inches high. The feather without the base is about 29 centimeters or 11 1/4 inches long and 7 cm or 2 3/4 inches wide.
The price includes shipping to the USA and Canada.
