The Spirit of Eagle

Regular price $135.00

9inch or 12 inch totem pole titled The Spirit of Eagle, hand carved on yellow cedar.  
This totem describes a poem that tells of a greedy bear and a watchful eagle.  When the eagle observes the bear eating yet another salmon, he swoops down and scolds the bear for doing so.  The bear told the eagle to be gone with a long growl, and the eagle flew away, knowing that soon, the greedy bear would have a stomach ache from all the salmon he would eat.  Sure enough, the bear was soon so full that he couldn't move, so he went into hibernation all winter, leaving all the rest of the salmon to the joyous eagle.
