Creative Spirit Eagle - Archtop

Price : $1,618,033.98

Top: Halfling® carve

On the back of the headstock a 25¢ piece from 1806 is embedded. It belonged to Dr. Benjamin Rush, a Founding Father, fought with General Washington and is one of the original signers of the Declaration of Independence. Dr. Rush also assembled Lewis and Clark’s medical supplies for their Journey of Discovery. He is also credited with being the founder of American Psychiatry. His coin acts as remembrance and honors him on many different levels. The Creative Spirit Eagle is a heartfelt embrace of the power music to help people heal. When the daily trials and tribulations bow your head down to the ground and bleak and blackened clouds fog your mind that slows your step, shortens your stride…it’s then you need to listen, feel the energy…look up towards the light of the sun. The eagle represents the courage to overcome the obstacles in your life, soar above the sorrow and misery and find the path that leads you to that very bearable lightness of being.
