To see a "Breaking Out Eagle" embossed leather picture is truly inspiring. I personally saw one of these in the Al and Ann Stolman Museum in Tandy Headquarters years ago and it really blew my mind. This eagle is heavily embossed, and is "ripping" his way out of the leather. Try this project, it is fun and truly a learning experience!
