This stylized eagle is carved in the Pacific NW (First Nations) symbols of Alaskan (Nootka) Yellow Cedar with inset stones of green tigereye. Most of the shaping was done with a crooked knife, but the closeup shows me using a #2-20mm gouge on the wing tips.

-- Phil Allin - There are mountain climbers and people who talk about climbing mountains. The climbers have "selfies" at the summit!

Looks good Phil. The Tigereye adds nice detail, and it must come alive when it catches a bit of sunlight.
