Navajo carver Arvin Morris used a variety of additions to add color and texture to this amazing eagle kachina. The eagle, representing strength and power, is considered the ruler of the sky and messenger to the heavens, and is depicted here in a variety of colors with several different accents. The eagle’s wings are outstretched, eight large brown and white feathers extending outward in a half circle, leather accents circling its black and yellow arms. The eagle’s face is painted turquoise with red, black and white accents, while its yellow beak extends outward from its face, red ears protruding from each side of the head set with shells. A brown leather strap crosses the eagle’s body on a diagonal, while white leather surrounds its lower half, accented in turquoise, blue, red, and black patterns, while turquoise leather is tied around the eagle’s legs. The piece is finished with turquoise and white moccasins showcasing brown leather accents, as well as white fur along the neck, shoulders, arms, and top of the head. 11 1/2″ tall x 15″ wide.
