According to the cancel culture crowd this is a Nazi symbol.

I don't like the way the legs look. I've never seen an eagle look like that. I would like it if the legs were more straighter. I would think in real life that an eagle has no stability in his lower body like that.

Statues are offensive to some. It will be torn down... just a matter of time.

I hear the Perigrine Falcons and some other raptors find it offensive and may organize a protest flight and tear it down...

Brian Keith is an amazing artist. He is amazingly humble, as well. Have you seen his sculptures around the edge of the pond at Blackhawk museum?

Love art but I don't think it should made out of bronze; someone is going to try and steal it.

Why are we paying for this statue? Seems like a waste of money. Why not fund our schools more? Or invest in our community more. This is superfluous but frankly not unexpected in a town filled with tone-deaf privileged folk.

A symbol of racism and white privilege for sure. Lol.

Something of beauty finally in San Ramon! The City Center is a disgrace, there is no beauty there at all, I haven't found anyone who likes the design of that place! I am proud we have an artist in our community who cares about San Ramon.
