Hematite Birdman Transition Sculpture, quite heavy. Though primarily a bird form, the long legs and toes indicate human intent. Shaman were called bird-men for their ability to travel the cosmos during hallucinogenic rituals. With the bird's ability to fly, shaman and birds were close allies. The bulging eyes may be a metaphor for cohoba intoxication. 5 3/4" long, 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".
