artist statement

Legend has the "Salmon" as the transportation device for the human soul to the heavens, because the salmon is one of the innocent beings of creation, and as they climb the rivers to spawn and expire, they are also traveling closer to heaven helping the soul even more to its final destination.

In this rendition of the salmon, the soul is resting in the body just as jesus was placed in Mary's arms in Michelangelo's sculpture 'Pieta'.

Artist Statement

This eagle contains many clans in its wings, and with the love of the east coast tribe colors I also wanted to include the east coast in this majestic bird sculpture. all tribes and clans come together in unity.

Tom

This Eagle was was transformed into a musical instrument by Steven Miller and Rick Harper and the wonderful contribution from Tom Lee Music.

In this Eagle I wanted to incorporate music visually somehow? flowing? thin it came to me. With a little adjustments to our customary shapes, I was able to transform regular U-shapes and Ovoid's into musical notes and keeping the West Coast native Flare.

Eagle legend

  • Eagle is respected for its intelligence and power, as well as its extraordinary vision, in both the literal and figurative senses.
  • Eagle clan families are traditionally the most prominent, and Eagle chiefs the most powerful. Eagles in myth are, likewise, usually noble characters.
  • Eagle spirits are associated with lofty ideals and the pursuit of freedom.
  • Eagle is revered as a powerful hunter.
  • Groups of mythical Eagles may gather for co-operative whale hunting expeditions, since, unlike the giant Thunderbird, Eagle is not strong enough to hunt whales alone.
  • Eagle may often be depicted with Salmon, one of its favorite foods.
  • Eagle feathers and down are sacred: traditionally, shamans believed in their healing powers and used them in a variety of ceremonial and ritual contexts, such as honoring a respected guest.
  • In some Haida myths and legends, Eagle and Raven are close companions and serve as alter egos to one another They are two halves of the great whole, often divided and often united. They are technically equals.
