Make It Majestic, Part One
Capture the commanding presence of a bald eagle with a bust.
So you feel like carving a bald eagle, but maybe you don’t want to invest the time in making the whole bird. Might I suggest carving a bust instead? In doing so, you still get the chance to capture the intensity of the eagle’s glare, its majesty and dominance as a commanding bird of prey, and the beauty of its colors. And maybe it will give you the added confidence to tackle an entire eagle. Of course, on its own, an eagle bust is a splendid study of the species and makes for an eye-catching work of art. Whatever your reasons, this is a perfect piece to challenge your raptor carving skills.
