Sparrowhawks are small birds of prey. They're adapted for hunting birds in confined spaces like dense woodland, so gardens are ideal hunting grounds for them. Adult male sparrowhawks have bluish-grey back and wings and orangey-brown bars on their chest and belly. Females and young birds have brown back and wings, and brown bars underneath. Sparrowhawks have bright yellow or orangey eyes, long, yellow legs and long talons. Females are larger than males, as with most birds of prey.
Variation you will never find two that are the same, All our sculptures are unique with slight variations in shape and colouring resulting in a truly stunning piece that is as individual as the client who orders it is to us.
This also extends (if chosen) to the wooden basses, they sit upon we only use reclaimed or naturally scored drift wood and each piece is chosen to match the character of the sculpture that has been ordered.
Bespoke projects and commissions we can undertake any sculpture that is not listed in our catalogue.
You can immortalise a favourite pet in clay, we can work from photos and supplied dimensions to get a realistic likeness. or if you require an animal in a specific pose/posture we can also accommodate your request
Natural Base materials some of our sculptures use natural materials for their bases such as hard woods or natural slate.
So with this in mind please understand there could be some variation as we cannot always source the same materials we do however make sure that every sculpture represents the same quality and finish as those pictured and matches it as closely as possible.
This dose however means that every sculpture is totally unique.
