Falco Mexicanus

1989 by Ross Matteson   bronze    16 x 10 x 9 inches   edition size 20   Sold Out Edition

Falco Mexicanus    is a portrait of an imprinted trained prairie falcon.   It was the first bronze falcon sculpture that I made with such close live reference.   An imprinted falcon will often become very relaxed after eating.   With this bird, I was actually able to go back and forth between the bird and sculpture, feeling the similarities and differences in their form.   In this photograph, we see both a front and back view of the same piece.
