Copper Eagle Bentwood Box Earrings
These striking copper earrings represent a bentwood box, featuring First Nation formline designs hand-carved by Kwakwaka'wakw artist Soloman Seward. The animal crest depicted in these earrings is the eagle; identifiable through its downward hooked beak.
Eagle is a symbol of great strength, leadership, power, prestige, and vision and is one of the two main Haida crests. It is also one of Seward's family crests.
Solomon Seward was born on March 16, 1970, in the port town of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island's Southeast coast, where he still lives today. Although Nanaimo lies within the traditional territory of the Coast Salish Nations, Soloman is of Kwakwaka'wakw descent. Solomon belongs to the Tsawataineuk band of the Kwakiutl that hail from Kingcome Inlet on the mainland coast and holds Eagle and Bear as his Tsawataineuk family crests.Show More
