Common features which are used in the "Eagle with Spreading Wings" are the black formline which defines all the Eagle parts. Inner designs of the head use the U Shape for the Ears and Ovoid for the eye orbit. Wings are variations of U Shapes angled out to form the magnificent Spreading Wings. The Oval Body is accented with S shapes to represent the ribs and crescents to represent feathers. The Foot consists of Four claws. U Shapes are frequently used on birds to depict the shape of feathers. The U Shaped tail Feathers have accents of trigon shapes. Two Large Trigons accent the spreading wings in flight. The edges of the blanket are bordered by a Geometric Basketry Design.
