Bronze Eagle Sculpture

Monument Size    I    94" tall (73" tall without steel base) x 26" wide x 40" deep

 

Native American lore says that the eagle is the only creature that can fly to the heavens, bridging heaven and Earth. There is no doubt that this is one of the most majestic creatures in nature. I have always been enamored of the flight of large birds of prey. As an adolescent I would hike in the woods in Guilford, Connecticut and get as high up on a ridge as possible to watch the hawks glide. 

This eagle has a sun on his wing, denoting his destination. The other designs represent the currents of the air on which he soars.
