An Eagle Sculpture by Laurel


20.4″h x 16.5″w x 21.5″d
Edition of 55

I strive to create designs that uniquely depict a creature, tell a story, or a share a feeling.

In this case I, like so many other artists, felt the need to create something reflective of what the world starting going through in 2020 and our response to it. The eagle is incredibly symbolic and powerful. And I wanted to complement that power by framing it with the crescent moon, which embodies creation and manifestation. Put the two together and you have Moonshot.

There are multiple definitions of Moonshot , from baseball homeruns in the 1940s to the Apollo program in the 1960s. To me Moonshot is an expression of believing that anything is possible, even the biggest things. We don’t know what the journey looks like, but we can appreciate that the eagle will do it in style, expressing the fierce joy of forward movement. There’s nothing we can’t achieve if we truly try.

Check back for a video. I’ll post as soon as I can.
