This statue of a falcon is a unique, one of a kind artwork. The body of the Falcon was hand carved from Agate (Blue Quartz). It has Citrine eyes and its feet are plated with 18 kt gold. The falcon perches on a solid, rough-hewn amethyst base, depicting a truly magnificent representation of the falcon as a bird of prey.
This piece is signed and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. It works equally well as a centerpiece for a collection of bird carvings or as a stand-alone piece.
A tiny portion on the amethyst base has some rough edges, a natural imperfection of the stone, nevertheless it does not distract the beauty of the piece. This imperfection is shown in one of the photographs below.
Including the amethyst base, this statue stands 13" and the falcon alone is 10" from bill to tail. The whole item weighs 14 lbs. This will be shipped in a wooden crate and the shipping weight is at least 25 lbs.
