The Eagle Dancer Sculpture by Samuel Lightfoot ( b. 1960). Donning the feathers of the eagle, the most revered bird in Native American culture, this mediator to the spirit world dances a story as old as time. The artist, inspired by traditional Southwest tribal customs, sculpted this museum-quality warrior with incredible detail, then cast this foot-high work of art in quality designer resin and meticulously hand-painted it to be virtually indistinguishable from a verdigris bronze original. This sculpture is inspired by traditional southwest art but is not an Indian product or the product of a particular Indian tribe or organization.
