let the eagle soar for no reason
This wall sculpture of the eagle from the u.s. coin is one of three made for polish artist Piotr Uklanski. It's a joy to carve american marble, aka styrofoam, using really sharp knives. Most countries have a national bird. Here it is the bald eagle but a better choice could be the great north american wild turkey. Anyways the Rubell Family Collection has one and the other two flew the coop across the big pond.
