The eagle has long been a powerful symbol for Native Americans. Master of the skies, the eagle carries prayers to heaven and has a special connection with the Creator. Eagles are protectors, associated with visions and spirits.
In this bolo, the eagle is inlaid with Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and coral.
The small, straight lines along the outside of the pin are rain symbols, which mean renewal and fertility.
Made by Navajo artist Ray Begay.
