Stan Hunter, Majestic, 1996, pastel on paper
This work conveys power and confidence. Courage is captured in the bird’s eyes. Eagles are symbolic of majesty and power and associated with oaths of honesty. Honesty is what grounds the process of healing. In order to heal, one must confront their weaknesses as much as their strengths. The eagle’s body almost blends into the background, ultimately equating nature to being. Meaning, there is truly no difference between nature and being. Everything is equalized and blends together creating a narrative of equity and unification.
