This carved pine eagle is in flight. The displayed eagle is carved in deep relief in a spread winged pose and mounted as a architectural ornament to a acanthus carved shelf. The eagles plumage is carved in a realistically three dimensional pose with clinched talons. It was intended to be seen from below as indicated by the carved detailing.
