This Eagle Pendant has been hand-carved by Haida artist Amy Edgars. The Pendant has been carved in argillite and features 6 abalone inlays.
The Native Eagle Symbol 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.
Argillite is a very rare medium - there is only one argillite quarry in Canada, and it is in Haida Gwaii. The Haida own the exclusive rights to use argillite and it has become a sculptural tradition among Haida people.
