This little guy was fun for me, I liked it from the very start. Mostly for it’s shape and the expression he makes. He looked like he had something to say from the very beginning. His foot was forward and his wings looked ruffled. When I came to the point of adding the talons, I placed the piece on a steel block to help me decide where they were to go and how they sit on or off the table. As soon as I put him on the block, I could tell it needed a base. I chose jatoba wood because it is a happy medium in colour. Once the block was added, I immediately thought of an earlier piece I had completed called “the soap box”, which got it’s title because he looked like he was standing on a pedestal giving a speech. This one has that same feel.
