Eagle Standing on Flags

This is a recent commission I just finished. It is a copy of an old eagle I found a picture of online many years ago. The photo was of very poor quality and it was small, so creating the pattern required some guess work. I have no idea how big the original was, but the customer wanted his 40″ wide, which made it only 10″ high. When finished it seemed rather small, but the customer had a specific space he wanted to hang it. Here is the carving completed in raw wood.

Here it is after being dyed. The customer requested an aged finish. When wearing down the finish you need a dark base so you don’t end up with new looking wood under an older finish.

And here is the finished product, lightly aged.

    I particularly like your “Eagle Standing on Flags”!

    Would you please quote me a price for a similar piece in the same size and any other size you might be able to do. I do like the lightly aged finish as in the photos.

    Thanks and best regards,

    Bill
