Eagle Panel

Availability: Only 1 available

Red Cedar wood, Abalone shell, Acrylic paint

Moy Sutherland’s Eagle Panel constitutes a superb rendering of a powerful Pacific Northwest Coast figure. His tasteful use of brightly coloured Abalone inlay accentuates the panel’s bold formlines, culminating in another beautiful work of art by Sutherland.

The Eagle is seen as a symbol of prestige, power, peace, wisdom and friendship. Eagles are one of the most prominent beings in the art and mythology of Pacific Northwest Coast Indigenous culture, and claim both honour and high stature. They are respected for their intelligence, grace, and power, and can be associated with freedom and lofty pursuits. In artwork, the figure can be easily recognized by its hooked beak.

Moy has learned his craft from both Kwakwaka’wakw and Nuu-chah-nulth artists, and has used this experience to broaden his understanding of all Pacific Northwest Coast First Nations’ art forms. Although he is very mindful of staying within the traditional rules and values of his culture, he strives to find ways to set himself apart from other artists. He enjoys exploring different media and he is refining his own unique style, both with modern and traditional techniques. For Moy, his art is very deeply rooted in his culture. He finds it both spiritually rewarding and educational.
