This piece is part of the ‘Spirit Shield’ series which is loosely based on the ‘Medicine Wheel’ of the Native Americans, the ‘Mandala’ of the Tibetan and East Indians, and the ‘Wheel of the Year’ based on Celtic/Pagan Spirituality coupled with my own meditations on it’s symbolism and meanings. This particular piece features different Eagles of  the Americas: the Bald Eagle in the East, the Harpy Eagle in the South, the Golden Eagle in the west, and the ‘Spotted Eagle’ in the North.  The ‘Spotted Eagle’ is the immature phase of a Bald or Golden Eagle. The Lakota and Dakota Indians revere it as the most sacred of the Eagles. For me, Eagle represents ‘Spirit’ or ‘God’ The one who is the connection to the heavens and the Sun.
