Ernie Mackel III's high flying Eagle is skillfully carved of a serpentine stone speckled with augite. The fine incising on this small carving must have required a balanced hand and intense concentration. The tiny but mighty eagle has a wing span of only 2 1/2" wide and measures 7/8" long, head to tail by 1/2" tall with eyes of turquoise.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this eagle fetish will go to the Zuni Eagle Sanctuary. Please see our resources page for more information on the sanctuary.
