You have a choice of 3 sizes of this Falcon Statue . this falcon is the largest. It measures 17 inches horizontal and vertical. It has been electroplated with copper.
You will note that the falcon is perched on a human hand. You also see a chain that acts like a leash. The Falcon is a highly repected animal in Dubai. When flying on airplances, the bird gets a first class seat all to itself!
Worldwide there are 40 species of falcon. In the USA the Peregrin Falcon is the best known. This bird, due to DDT, was endangered. Getting rid of DDT has helped the peregrin on its road to recovery. The Peregrin Falcon has been clocked at a speed of 200 mph!!! That's fast. I remember being near the Cliff House in San Francisco and a Peregrin flew over my head at an amazing speed as it swooped toward the ocean.
If you would like to display a statue that "talks" speed and resistance, the Falcon can carry that message. You can add a plaque with a personalized message.
