Assemblyman Michael Cusick wanted to present an award to the Sandy Relief Organization, Guyon Rescue for their service to the community in the aftermath of the storm. He liked the glass awards and the 3 dimensional look of the carved images. He asked if an eagle could be done. I choose this image for its strong and bold pose and detail in the feathers.
