Close Up another Panel....Eagle Head
Close Up Of Fourth and Final Panel
My love of Eagles and my Native American name of Eaglesbrother,
was my inspiration for this Gourd Art piece.
After cutting out the top of the raw gourd and cleaning it out and sanding the inside smooth,
I took pencil in hand and started to sketch out the designs and circles (panels) with different pictures of Eagles in each panel. I then started wood burning in all boarders and pictures
and after all burning was done, went back to each panel and used all leather dyes to color .
I think I enjoyed doing this one most of all because I honor the Eagle above all other birds of prey. There are 4 Panels in all, each with it's own Eagle Portrait.
