This captures the soul of a predator in its natural habitat, standing proud with what I would refer to as “the one that didn’t get away”. This carving is crafted from poplar wood and coated with a natural finish. When totaling up the time on this project, I was shocked to see that I had 100 hours on it.

Very authentic and ’’alive’’ carved eagle and his prey. Feather and other details look awesome!

Very Nice Carving, 100 hours is really a good time for something this detailed!

Very nice details and a pretty realistic work of art. Most people don’t realise the difficulty of dimensional carving. I think 100 hrs is low.

Beautiful! I have just started carving, so am nowhere near that fast or good.
