Atlanta Falcon

FFJ 1117 custom lead2

November 2017 - Home field to the National Football League’s Atlanta Falcons, Mercedes-Benz Stadium is also home to the largest free-standing bird sculpture in the world. Standing 41 ft. tall with a 68-ft. wingspan, the 73,000-lb. stainless steel raptor was designed and assembled by Hungarian artist Gábor Miklós Szőke. This engineering marvel was fabricated from over 1,000 laser-cut pieces of stainless steel sheet and grips a 13-ft.-diameter football cast from bronze. “Rise Up”—the Falcons’ motto—now takes on a whole new meaning.
