Desert Ironwood Bald Eagle
The Bald Eagle is the largest member of the raptor family and kills prey with its hooked beak. With exceptional vision, strong muscular legs and powerful talons, the adult male can reach 40" in body length with a wingspan of 5' 11" to 7' 7". Hand carved in great detail from a solid piece of one of the most beautiful hardwoods in the world - what we know as Desert Ironwood (Olneya Tesota) - you can almost feel the intensity of his stare. The wood is gathered from naturally fallen trees and through long hours of hand carving, sanding and polishing, the beautiful burl and distinctive grain inherent to Ironwood appears. Polish with a soft cloth and occasionally apply a light coat of neutral paste-type shoe wax. Measures 4-3/8" x 3-3/8" x 7-3/4" tall. Weighs approximately 2 lbs. Each carving is unique, so size and weight will vary slightly. Hand carved in Mexico. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
