Re: Looking for Symbolic meaning of asymetric eagle wings in sculpture
Thank you so much for your input and link, and your interpretation ronsu18.
This particular image is taken from a royal adress. But I have also seen it in images from Hatra during isis destruction, and as a depiction of the egyptian god Horus but with no context.
What particularly interests me is the one wing down one wing out to the side position. I know different folks have different meaning, but sometime some gestures are primal (?). I thought perhaps it was welcoming the one in front to its protection/did not think of it as pointing towards an enemy. I don´t know much about it, but the statue clings to me and I don't know quite how to get to the bottom of it so thank you for giving me response on this! Much appreciated.
