About The Eagle Hawkman sculpture

Man from Sea Otter with Clam Man with Eagle wings are detachable, as are sea urchin spines.

Bill Reid's influence is apparent, especially when examining a side view of the totem.  Graceful and arresting, Eagle Hawkman is an especially fine example of LaFortune's carving.
