Striker part II

I am so excited to finalize the scanning of the taxidermy Coopers Hawk, this one has been quite an adventure. It will be off to the 3-d printer soon. I think it will be a fine compliment to Katie's hand cut paper wall work showing scenes of small birds frolicking among beautiful foliage, but the Coopers Hawk is a fierce and unforgiving predator .

I recently spent a week in New York visiting some of my favorite spots and doing some research, here is the hawk case at the American Museum of Natural History.


This was a new display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, its all birds modeled by Kandler for Meissen around 1740.
