To give you a quick idea of the size of this great piece, compare it to a Coke can:

It weighs 6 pounds, is 20 inches tall and 16 inches wingtip-to-wingtip:

The carving fits nicely into a large base piece:

I assume this was made in the Philippines. The retired Marine officer had a houseful of Philippine carvings, tribal weapons, bowls, etc. It was some of the nicest such Phillipine artifacts I've seen. I love the work on this eagle. He received a very large Phillipine carved plaque during a change of command: http://www.usmilitar...laque-painting/
