Description of John's symbology painted into this drum. Directly below the eagles eye, wind blowing through the mountains. Below that, the moon and life's stairway to Heaven. The Diamond symbolizes expanded consciousness. Two feathers symbolize movement, flying. The pointed design is a kiva, or temple, in rocks with prayers moving upward to the sky that can be heard when the Eagle cries. The half circles are water beings being carried in the wings.
