Hand Sculptured Ironwood Eagle
A very nice ironwood carving that flows as it should when creating an Eagle form. Stamped ’Made in Mexico’ on the bottom of base, I would suspect it to have been done by the Seri Indians.
Desert Ironwood is found in the southwestern deserts and can live for 800 years. The wood itself is impervious to insects as well as fungi and a tree can take a millennium to weather away after dying.
Product Quantity: Only 1 item in stock.
Condition: Very Good! It has been very lightly rubbed with pure mineral oil (food grade cutting board oil) to protect the wood. The results will be a darkening of the ironwood which in a short time will begin to lighten as the nondrying mineral oil dissipates, showing an even deeper beauty of the enriched wood grain. This should be done yearly to preserve the carvings integrity. No other oil should be used since some will actually rot wood.
Country: ‘Made in Mexico’ stamped on bottom of base.
