Default To Noel_Byrne: The two headed eagle

Hi Noel,
I don't know of any connection between an obelisk and the two headed eagle, it's a good question, though...The double-headed eagle can be seen on a lot of objects and structures in Saint Petersburg.
Originally a Byzantine symbol, the double-headed eagle was adopted by the Russian tsars as their own. One eagle head represents the East and the other represents the West. Now the double-headed eagle is on the coat of arms of the Russian Federation.
Thank you for your interest and for kind comments!
