The eagles perch at two eye levels, high and low, and the elder eagle teaches the eaglet this gesture of protection. The shrouds formed by the wings cup the area in front of the eagles' bodies, as the cradle architecture of the nest enfolds the eagles' space and the walls themselves enclose the sculpture.
