Eagle sculpture nearing completion

Eagle sculpture with sculptor David Turner

A sculpture to be placed on the pediment at the entrance to the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown building is nearing completion at Turner Sculpture in Onley, Virginia. Depicting an eagle mantling two eaglets between its wings, the sculpture is 17 feet across and weighs 500 pounds. A stars-and-stripes shield on the eagle’s chest represents the 13 colonies at the time of the Revolution, and the two eaglets reflect the museum’s mission to educate future generations. Sculptor David H. Turner (shown at his studio on February 5, 2016) has more than 60 commissioned works on public display across the country, including “A Fair Wind” at Jamestown Settlement’s Quandricentennial Plaza.
