    Eagle on Snag


    Haida artist Darrel Amos lives a very urban life, but his mind and heart often turn to his Haida homeland and the creatures living there. This is a haunting portrayal of an eagle, sitting on a tall cedar snag, waiting for salmon to come up one of the coastal rivers in its spawning cycle. In good years there are tens of thousands of salmon lining the banks of rivers, dying there in their final stage of the four-year cycle of life. Eagles in their thousands (though more often now in their hundreds) sit on giant snags, swooping down to land on the gravely banks, to pull and tear at the hulks of the salmon, ensuring the eagle’s survival for the coming years. A moon figure overlooks the scene, caring for the circle of life portrayed. This painting is on a very light-weight wooden panel, that is affixed to a ¾” frame (made at Opus Arts, the premier art supply store in Vancouver). It would be very easy to hang on its own, or could be in turned framed – perhaps in a shadow box. It is a large piece, V 18” x H 14”. Weight 740 grams.
