LARGE BRASS PORTILLO EAGLE WALL AMULET
This dramatic and inspiring eagle dates back to the Portillo era of Mexico's history.
While the eagle has long been a symbol for Mexican autonomy - the national logo was redesigned after Portillo left office in the 70's
This is one of those oddly fascinating and curious objects Caviar20 loves to offer.
This wall amulet was likely affixed to a wall in a public space or an official room.
Today, decontextualized, it will look fantastic in an entry way or bathroom as quirky and cool wall art.
