American Eagle in DC at Sterling and Burke.
Patriotic, American 4" Eagle Ornament.
For centuries it was believed that the eagle could look directly into the sun and that it was reborn by diving into a fountain. Christians adopted this symbolism, comparing the eagle looking into the sun to Christ looking at His Father and the fountain as the renewal of the soul through baptism. Today, an eagle may often be spied on the baptismal fonts in older churches.
