Eagle Shield

Type of art: Pottery



The eagle is one of the most majestic and revered birds in our country as well as on our reservations. This particular eagle design was found carved into a conch shell at the native ruins Spiro Mounds in Oklahoma. The carving was repeated several times on the shell and was quite small. I found it quite intriguing and HAD to reproduce it.
