He is the king of birds. The royal eagle is the most impressive of the “acipitridae”, otherwise called raptors. It reigns over this emblematic family of birds of prey, because of its imposing size and the strength of its claws, which leaves no chance to its victim spotted from far away, thanks to its exceptional sight. No wonder it is found on many emblems and has inspired many artists. Beauty and pride found in this contemporary interpretation with sharp features, all wings spread, of the artist Salvador Sos. A spectacular work from the catalog of the Italica foundry, which produces this bronze in very small series. Famous Spanish bronzer from Azpeitia, from the province of Guipuscoa (Spanish Basque Country), where Ignace de Loyola was born, founder of the Jesuits.
