Falcon on tree - very large - Peregrine Falcon
handmade in earthenware
includes Certificate of Authenticity.
This tree sculpture has 7 x tiers, with the top 2 being joined together. Each tier rests on the one before, with a rubber mat secured between sections to protect clay from rubbing against each other.
This sculpture has been extensively tested in high winds, heavy rain, snow and hot sun and has not budged. Running through the centre of it is a star picket to ensure it's stability.
It features a finely sculpted peregrine falcon on top. It acts as a guardian as it looks over the landscape of this 191cm tall sculpture.
It includes 14 x medium size empty pot areas for plants. Each pot has a drainage hole about 1 inch on the side of it's base. It would be great for growing strawberries or other such plants.
This sculpture is for outdoor use and is recommended to be in a semi sheltered area.
