Zuni carver Lewis Malie carved this proud eagle from the tip of a deer antler.  It has many beautiful details including the eyes, beak, feathers, and claws.  It is small enough to fit in most medicine pouches.

Size: 1.5" H x .5 diameter

Raptors have many meanings in Native America.  The eagle is the most sacred 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 guardian of the sky world.  Hawks have a similar meaning, but not as powerful as the eagle.  For some Indigenous people, hawks are the smaller siblings of eagles.

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.
