From the Jansen book,  The Harrisburg Colossal Eagles.   The clippings below note that these eagles are each 22 feet tall and sit atop, well, very tall pylons on the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Bridge.

They were completed in 1930, another example of work Lawrie completed while still working on the Nebraska State Capitol Sculptures–the largest commission of his seven-decade career as a sculptor.

The clippings come from Lawrie’s own scrapbook, which is the closest thing there is to an inventory of his works.  The man standing  next to one of them, puts them in perspective: they are colossal.
