EAGLE

                                                                         
Eagle, 1971
Painted steel
Alexander Calder
American, 1898-1976
465 x 390 x 390 in. (1181.1 x 990.6 x 990.6cm); estimated weight 6 tons

Today is a very grey day here in Portland, so since I am in a grey state of mind, I decided to post a shot I took on another very grey day in Seattle, when Corbett and I were visiting the Sculpture Park.  If you are in Seattle, I highly recommend a visit; you can easily walk there from Pikes Market.  I think Calder would have been delighted to see the sculpture in this spectacular setting....the Eagle really does soar.
