The Eagles Have Landed
This magnificent bronze sculpture, a pair of eagles, wings unfurled, golden beaks engaged in conversation stands over seven feet tall, is almost six feet wide and weighs in at over 600 pounds.
The Marco Island Civic Association (MICA) and Marco Island Foundation for the Arts (MIFA) has permanently placed The Double Eagle Sculpture in front of MICA’s Sarazen Park, located on Collier Boulevard across from the South Beach access, to remain on permanent public display.
The quality and craftsmanship of this piece are unparalleled, with beautiful, subtle patinas worthy of these symbols of our nation. It will endure our salt air and give pleasure to residents for many years to come.
The theme of double eagles is appropriate for this park which honors golf legend Gene Sarazen, who was the first to shoot a “double eagle” during a Masters’ Tournament. The Double Eagles, as a patriotic symbol for our country are also appropriate for our island as a tribute to the many veterans that call Marco home. The Double Eagles are appropriate for Marco which also home to Paleo and Calusa, the residents pair of eagles that inhabit the Eagle Sanctuary on our island.
