Paula says - "Robert Weahkee calls this a traditional eagle. It is carved in reservation style, where the animal has minimal detail and closely resembles the stone from which it came. Note that the arrowhead in a medicine bundle is usually on top or at the side of the animal, rarely underneath as it is with this eagle."

About the Eagle Spirit

The eagle is a symbol of power, healing and wisdom. The eagle represents enlightenment reached through inner work, understanding and reclaiming our personal power. Tenacity, clear vision and patience, living in balance with Spirit and Earth. Eagle connects one with Great Spirit, the Great Mystery, opening the soul to greater healing. It tells you that the universe is giving you the opportunity to fly above your life's worldly levels, or above the shadow of past realities, granting yourself permission to be free in order to reach all the joy that your heart desires and Spirit requires.
