For the serious ironwood collector or anyone who likes the best. This hand carved statue has the highest quality carving possible for ironwood. This one has extensive carving and is perfectly proportioned with beautiful balance. It actually looks like an Eagle. Most of the ones that I see are cartoonish looking to my eye...Done by amateurs for the tourist trade. This Eagle/Falcon was carved by a Master carver from a solid piece of ironwood. Stunning maroon and brown highlights as ironwood should be. There are different grades of Ironwood. The highest quality and therefore least seen is very dark brown/maroon, almost black. Condition is as close to mint as can be considering this is a hand carved piece of Art and is over 50 years old.
In person it is breathtaking. 11-1/2 Tall Weighs approx 4-1/2 lbs. Will be packed to perfection with 3 dense foam all around. Ironwood is the heaviest wood on the planet.This piece weighs approx 5 lbs. With the 3 foam all around and extra bracing I estimate the package will weigh approx 8-10 lbs.
