Eagle Column

êîëîííà îðëà.jpg The Eagle Column is the oldest park structure, installed in the time of Palace’s first owner, Grigory Orlov. The column rests on a four-sided pedestal with a marble eagle on top. The Column is 6.4 meters tall with a 50 cm shaft in diameter. Compositionally and visually, it is linked with another park structure, the Eagle Pavilion, which was erected in the 1790s on the Long Island. Some researchers have identified Masonic symbols in its architecture.
