Design:

Reflecting his background in carving totem poles, Alvin Adkins brings depth and strength to his work with deep carvings and strong lines that capture the essence of the eagle.

Eagles represent strength, wisdom and balance. They are stealth hunters, strong, fierce, and intelligent in their understanding of the world around them. Although their physical presence exudes strength and commands attention, they move with grace and precision. They also symbolize partnership, choosing one eagle to mate with for life, and using the same nest year after year. In Haida art, eagles are visually represented by their short and curved beaks, sometimes with wings, feathers and talons showing.
