Eagle seat

This was quite a chalenging sculpture from an engineering point of view, as I wanted to create a garden seat for four people but at the same time have only a single support where the eagle's tallons met the ground. The supporting framework was to be set into the ground below with concrete.
The obvious choice for the seats were those found on tractors, and it soon became clear that finding four matching examples would be another challenge, and moving the structure to it's new home yet another, as it weighs in at around 400kgs!
