Red tailed hawk sculpture

Sold - Thought I'd update the description for those who want to know what materials I used to make this. It is a polymer clay sculpture covered with real naturally moulted bird feathers that I cut down individually to make them from 0.5 - 1cm in length and then I put them on one at a time so they overlap. I painted the tail feathers and the rest of the markings with special paints for materials (fabric paints). The legs are made from wire and latex and the eyes are green half hole glass rounds. The talons are made from acrylic melted down in to a really thin sheet and then when it's almost solid I cut out the claws and shape them. It took 30 hours to make approximately.
