Gargantuan Stainless Steel Sculptures by Kevin Stone

Chilliwack, British Columbia-based Kevin Stone specializes in creating gargantuan, one-of-a-kind stainless steel sculptures. His towering bald eagle, called “Power and Authority,” stands an astounding 20 ft high and has a massive 31 ft wingspan. He also completed an 85 feet long mirror polished stainless steel sculpture, the “Imperial Water Dragon.” For almost two years, working seven days a week, he designed and created this 6,000-pound, 12-feet-high, 14-feet-wide and 35-feet-long dragon with two massive coils. It was made for River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond to celebrate the Year of the Dragon.

Stone also has a more current project for Dolly Parton’s Dollywood, known simply as The Dollywood Eagle. With a wingspan measuring 42 ft and weighing more than 8,000 lbs, the sculpture (last image, below) is for the theme park’s newest roller coaster, Wild Eagle, which is set to open March 24th.
