an eagle-like profile or an eagle-shape profile?

He had a noble, eagle-like/shape profile.

I feel eagle-like sounds better, but on the other hand, it's about shape. Can't decide. Will you help me?

Thanks.

    Well ...

    I'd say an eagle-like profile is a profile shaped like an eagle's profile.

    But an eagle-shape profile is a profile shaped like an eagle.

    The second conjures up a rather strange image ....
