From the precise details of the sculpture to the deliberate and skillful
painting, the artists at Herend have once again created a figurine that
fully captures the essence of a member of the avian family. This
mighty predator can attain speeds of up to 150mph, especially during
dives, and this figurine beautifully reflects the energy of the hawk
balancing gravity and grace to come in for a smooth landing. Preferring
to hunt during the fringe hours of the day, this hawk’s dramatic golden
and reddish feathers mirror the colors of the low-hanging sun.
Completing the story are the intelligence conveyed by the deep, dark
eyes that notice the slightest stirring of the surrounding landscape.
