A bronze eagle sculpture, "U Wa Ha Li," by Arkansas artist David Harris was stolen yesterday from the Hot Springs Fine Arts Center, where it was on display as part of the Arkansas Sculptors Guild Exhibition. 

Executive Director Donna Dunnahoe said the 8-inch-tall, 7-pound sculpture was on a pedestal in the front gallery of the Fine Arts Center. She said it was taken around 4:15 p.m. yesterday as a group of people milled about the gallery; one of them momentarily distracted her. 

The sculpture is insured and Harris will be compensated for the $695 sale price of the piece. It was to travel to another sculpture show in Georgia after the guild show goes down Saturday. 

Dunnahoe has contacted antique galleries and recyclers to let them know of the theft. She hopes that it will be found and returned so it may travel to the Georgia show. 

David Harris and his wife, Bre, also a sculptor, own the Light and Time Design Studio in Royal. Dunnahoe said the theft had left her "heartbroken." The gallery will upgrade its security, she said.
