These two eagles were carved by Ed Lementino. They are bound together with their life-long love, devotion, and commitment. The larger one is carved from white marble with black and gray inclusions, and the smaller one is alabaster. The faces are nuzzled together and they each have inlaid jet eyes that gaze at one another. The offering bundle is heishi, turquoise and coral.
Size: 1" H x 2.125" L x 1" W
The eagle is the most sacred of all the raptors since it sees the furthest and flies the highest. It is considered as a messenger to take our prayers to the Creator. In Zuni Pueblo, eagles are also the guardians of the sky world. Like all raptors, eagles mate for life.
Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal. Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
