Hand carved soapstone by Six Nations artist Jacob Thomas. “Guardian” – an eagle carving with turtle.
The two main animals that play a significant role within First Nations cultures are the Eagle and Turtle. The Eagle watches over the people and brings good messages; the turtle offered himself to support the future generations by allowing Skywoman to lay the dirt on his back and create the lands.
One of a kind.
