Exquisite Neo-Romanian Style Eagle Panel

This is an extremely elegant, in my opinion, Neo-Romanian style panel depicting the biblical Garden of Eden, centred around the protector eagle fighting the evil serpents, surrounded by the lush branches and fruit of the tree of abundance (a grapevine plant in this instance), motifs inspired from the late medieval Wallachian church decorative panoply. The panel is quite large- about 1 x 1.4m, sitting on the side façade of a grand Neo-Romanian style building in the Buzesti area of Bucharest.
