The Battle

“The Battle” came about from my love for animals.  I love the symbol of our country (the bald eagle).  To me it stands for our beauty, strength, and persistence.  I wanted to create a sculpture of this beautiful creature.  The idea behind this sculpture was to give it life, and not just do one of a bird sitting on a branch or a bird with a dead fish in its claws.  This is why I decided on sculpting it with a rattlesnake fighting for its life.  The battle is not over!
