Desert Ironwood Eagle Bust
This beautiful carving of an American Bald Eagle gives one a strong sense of the piercing eyes and detailed feathering around the face and neck of the eagle. Carved from a solid piece of one of the most beautiful hardwoods in the world, what we know as Desert Ironwood (Olneya Tesota). The wood is gathered from naturally fallen trees and through long hours of carving, hand sanding and polishing, the beautiful burl and distinctive grain inherent to Ironwood appears. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity. Polish with a soft cloth and occasionally apply a light coat of neutral paste-type shoe wax. The bust measures 4-1/2" x 5-1/8" x 5-7/8" to 6" tall. Weighs about 2 lbs. Size and weight will vary. Hand carved in Mexico.
The Desert Ironwood Eagle Bust is unquestionably the finest likeness and rendition I have seen of a Bald eagle head torso. The desert ironwood is of the highest quality and beautiful grain. I am a collector of Bald Eagle art works and wall hangings. Rated 10/10 John I. Los Banos, CA
