Native American Acoma Carved Striped Marble Eagle Boy Sculpture by Walter Torres

This wonderful marble eagle boy stands on a finished round marble stone. A great carving by Walter Torres. There is a great story of the Eagle Boy and it was told to me as follows:

This story is of a boy who wished to fly like the eagles. The spirits told him that if he were to give up being a boy to be an eagle he could never go back. The boy told the spirits that he would be the best eagle and that is what he wished for. The spirits made his wish come true and the boy turned into an eagle. He was delighted with his new-found freedom and flew everywhere. After sometime he began to miss his family and friends. He returned to the spirits and requested to be turned back into a boy. He cried and cried and the spirits (being wise) knew this would happen and allowed the boy to return to land and be a boy again. He was grateful to the spirits and this carving represents the boy changing into the eagle and the eagle changing back into the boy. They remain inseparable.
