African Fish Eagle Hand Carved In Zimbabwe
This African Fish Eagle sculpture is handcrafted by the Shona artisans in Zimbabwe. This sculpture depicts the Eagle perched on a tree with its catch. This piece is detailed to exact perfection and evidences the Shona artisan’s artistic intuition. The African fish eagle feeds mainly on fish, which it swoops down upon from a perch in a tree, snatching the prey from the water with its large, clawed talons. The eagle then flies back to its perch to eat its catch. The African fish eagle or the African sea eagle, is a large species of eagle found throughout sub-Saharan Africa wherever large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply occur.
