This eagle in the Pacific Northwest “First Nations” style is very similar to another one in my projects here. Both are 10” x 26”- carved in Alaskan Yellow Cedar. The main difference is in the accent stones. These are regular brown tiger-eyes, mostly oval cabachons, The earlier eagle had green tiger-eyes. It was a gift to my brother. I liked it so much I made this one for myself. Finish: water-based poly over natural wood.

Really nice piece. I especially like how you accented it with the tiger-eyes. I’ve always loved the simplicity and nature of art like this. Thanks for sharing!

Most Pacific Northwest native art makes use of available materials, so they would likely use abalone shell for the accents – or copper.
