The Golden Eagle

The Golden Eagle at the entrance of Schonbrunn Palace, Vienna. It looked grand against the blue sky.

The eagle is symbolic of authority, ownership and virility; probably that is why the statues of these creatures are installed in places of power and importance. There are two of them installed on top of two long pillars at the gates of Schonbrunn Palace. They have such streamlined, sleek, chiseled look, that it is impossible to ignore them. The sun shone on them, illuminating them gloriously and the glitter attracted attention from far.
