About the Sculpture
This peregrine falcon sculpture is hand carved from a single piece of limewood. Once the carving is complete and the glass eyes have been fitted, the falcon is painted with acrylics .
“Peregrine falcons are amongst the most beautiful of flyers – and we are lucky to have several pairs resident near us in Kent. I do not often paint my originals but as this piece is mainly a study of the peregrine’s head and shoulders, it seemed right to capture some of its distinctive markings – the classic teardrop marks are best indicated with colour”.
