This Northern Goshawk, by Cindy Presant, is carved from one piece of Brazilian soapstone. It is perched on a log and is "mantling", with its wings. The layout of the carving was carefully planned to take advantage of the natural colour patterns and veining in the stone. It is finished with 15-20 coats of pure Tung oil. Its dimensions are 15cmx15cmx20cm. It weighs 3.6kg.
