Imagine an American bald eagle swooping down in full flight to snatch a rainbow trout from an icy mountain stream and you have the composition Splashdown. Dynamic movement of the meticulously carved body is captured in bronze, while the splashing water, head and tail are cast in stainless steel with gold-plated eyes, beak and feet.
Because collectors continued to request Splashdown, Fields created a monumental piece featuring a 12-foot-high eagle.
