This is an awesome Eagle Sculpture by Kitty Cantrell. It's a part of the 2002 Legends Series. The Eagle is standing astride the earth globe and the American Flag which he is perched upon ripples proudly. I believe it is made of a combination of materials such as bronze and pewter. The gold beak was tested and it is real gold. The base is marked 24/2002 so, it leads me to believe that this is a limited edition and only 24 were made. This is a very heavy piece as it weighs almost 10 pounds and it stands just over 11" high.
