Artist Statement : "The red formline represents life, and is the secondary formline colour. The black formline represents the opposite of life, and is the primary colour [of the design]. The blue-green formline represents the sky, and is a spiritual colour. The Eagle is turning in mid-air and is coming down towards the ground or water after its prey. The Eagle has its claw ready for action. The second Eagle is in the wing of the main Eagle, The second Eagle is created in a blue-green formline, with red lips and nose." --Eugene Alfred
