Golden Eagle (lectern)

    Some artists use the eagle to represent the resurrection of Christ because of the way eagles rise in flight.  It is best known as the symbol of St. John, one of the four animal symbols seen by the prophet Ezekiel in Ezekiel 1:10 (“As for the appearance of their faces: the four had the face of a human being, the face of a lion on the right side, the face of an ox on the left side, and the face of an eagle”).
