This is a super thick shelled gourd I have carved an eagle design into. I left it natural (with only a clear spray over it to preserve it) so not to take away from the oak wood & monkey pod carved eagle lid. I have added glass eyes so they stand out more along with a few strands of leather that have brass & bone beads that have a pheasant feather on the end of each. It is about 11" tall and 8" wide. Very sharp! Sorry about the glare in the shots!
