A life sized, ceramic sculpture group of a male and female American Bald Eagle with two chicks. Male at right standing upright; female to left, wings spread, bending over chicks. On a rocky base mounted on moulded wooden base with a brass plaque.

This sculpture made in 1982, was inspired by the words from Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and the adoption in 1782 of the Bald Eagle as the American national emblem.

Presented to Queen Elizabeth II by the artist, Michael Tandy, in 1982.
