About The Eagle Hawkman

"Man from Sea"

"Otter with Clam Man with Clam"

Eagle's wings are detachable, as are sea urchin's spines.

Graceful and arresting, this totem is an especially fine example of Mr. LaFortune's carving.

The influence of Bill Reid is apparent, when examining a side view of this totem, as seen in the last photo.
