Eagle & Wolf Carving
The eagle and the wolf are two important images to the Iroquois. The Eagle guards the Tree of Peace and the wolf is a clan animal. The sculpture is carved from soapstone by Cayuga artist Leroy Henry from Six Nations Reserve, Ontario. Leroy's family are all carvers. The eagle soars to great heights to warn the people of impending trouble. The open mouth in the sculptures symbolize the spirit of the animal. Their work is exhibited in museums, galleries & private collections in Canada, the U.S.A. and Europe. H: 8"
