EAGLE SPIRIT RING

This eagle silhouette was forged from a single piece of mild steel, riveted inside a 14-inch hammered, scalloped ring of the same material. The ring is riveted at the top, with one tapered end looping back on itself and forming a small ring for wall mounting. Four life-size eagle feathers, forged from the same mild steel, are mounted on rings, exactly duplicating the methods used by Native Americans in mounting/hanging feathers from their ceremonial regalia. Each feather quill is hammer “trimmed” and looped back upon itself, then wrapped and “tied” with steel wire to emulate the leather thong and red twine traditionally used by native craftsmen. Top to bottom this piece measures approximately 26 inches.
