Wood Carving: Spirit Animal “The Eagle”

By Lori The Artist

The eagle is considered “the king of the skies” and because he can soar to the highest heights, he is also considered “a messenger to the highest Gods”.

This gigantic bird has impeccable vision, 4-8 times that of a human. He is able to spot out a rabbit 3km away.

When you see an eagle, his message to you is to view things with a keen eye and from a broader and higher perspective.

For centuries, indigenous tribes have associated the eagle with vision, wisdom, strength and resilience. Religious and spiritual traditions embrace the Eagle as a symbol of salvation and hope.
