North American Bald Eagle
Mixed Media - Magazine Collage
The North American Bald Eagle rendered entirely out of recycled magazines. I use the colors of the paper much like paint and cut whatever shape is needed for each area. It can take multiple layers and a lot of patience to achieve a final result that I am happy with.
The Bald Eagle is America's national bird and a well recognized symbol of patriotism and freedom. It is also considered a sacred bird by many North American cultures. Its feathers are very important to Native American religious and spiritual customs. The eagle is a symbol of peace to the Native Americans because of it's direct contact with the upper world of the sun.
The image of the Bald Eagle can be found on seals, logos, stamps and U.S currency. It appears on most official seals of the U.S. government, including the Great Seal of the United States and the Seal of the President of the United States.
