Artist Statement : "If you have ever seen the Eagle walking on the beach, he looks as though he is hopping and he has to keep his wings out for balance. This is what I had in mind when drawing this design. The Kulus represents the Tamed Hamatsa. This design also represents the costume worn by the man dancing the Tamed Hamatsa." - R.H.
