"Eagle is one of the most important beings in the art and [oral histories]. It is respected for its intelligence and power, as well as its extraordinary vision, in both the literal and figurative senses. In the art, Eagle is identified by a powerful beak whose upper half ends in a strong downward curve...Often Eagle is shown with ovoid eyes; split U feathers, wing and tail feathers...and sharp, curved talons (Shearar 2000: 43-44). - Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Crest, Beings and Symbols
