The eagle is done from a 2"x"x 6" bass wood block. His "perch" is a piece of aspen we found in the Wasatch Mountains in Utah. Paint work was done wet into wet and a coat of satin spar poly protects the piece from handling. I named the eagle Aukiki which is the Native American word for the Kankakee river where these birds reside in this area.
The pattern I used was a black and white set of images. Now that we just came back from the river and looked at the resident eagles I see I need to repaint the beak as the nares are part of the beak. OOPS.
