This bald eagle is about to strike. It's piercing gaze staring straight into your eyes. It's talons reaching for your chest. You are in the final moment before you become prey.
This eagle is hand made from thousands of nickels, dimes and pennies.

We love working with coins as they already have direct connection to our memories as joyful and necessary tokens. Coins are a durable construction material and per unit size they are economical. We have a love for animals and birds. In themselves they are art. Habitat loss and threats to wildlife is a concern to us and we wish to impart on the participant that wildlife is bigger than we are, hence the size of our installations.
