Yellow Cedar, Red Cedar, Abalone Shell, Moose Bone, Water Buffalo Teeth (15”x14”x5”)

In the battle of good versus evil, evil demons have stolen the essence of the eagle as the Creator was bringing it to life and have taken possession of it. The Shaman has entered into battle with the demons to return it to the eagle.

The red cedar demon hand depicts tortured souls. In the eye the essence of the eagle is carved in moose bone. The yellow cedar bird shape beside the essence is the Shaman’s spirit protector, watching his back as he battles.

The top figure is the evil demon now possessed by the good spirit from the Shaman. The half formed face is the evil demon being forced out by the Shaman’s power.
