This life sized Peregrine falcon skull was hand carved in wax here in NYC. It is perfect in scale and detail. It is a very comfortable and a nice weight.

This is another masterpiece carved by Keith. " I got something you might like." he says.
What an understatement. This is without doubt the nicest bird skull available anywhere. Have a close look at the details especially the horns off the eye sockets. Every detail is anatomically correct down to the graceful hook of the beak. I feel like there hasn't been a piece like this on the planet since the Ottoman Empire.


The piece is 1 1/2 inches long and 1 inch wide.

I hang it on a 24 inch Sterling Silver cable chain with a sterling clasp. It's a really sharp piece.


I did some research on the mechanics of the falcon skull.

Once prey is spotted, it begins its stoop, folding back the tail and wings, with feet tucked.[13] The air pressure from a 200 mph (320 km/h) dive could possibly damage a bird's lungs, but small bony tubercles in a falcon's nostrils guide the shock waves of the air entering the nostrils (compare intake ramps and inlet cones of jet engines), enabling the bird to breathe more easily while diving by reducing the change in air pressure.[52] To protect their eyes, the falcons use their nictitating membranes (third eyelids) to spread tears and clear debris from their eyes while maintaining vision. Prey is struck and captured in mid-air; the Peregrine Falcon strikes its prey with a clenched foot, stunning or killing it, then turns to catch it in mid-air.[51] The Peregrine will drop it to the ground and eat it there if it is too heavy to carry. Prey is plucked before consumption.

Due to the widespread use of DDT the Peregrine falcon remains endangered. It has shown some recovery. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation reported that there were 67 pairs of peregrine falcons in the state during 2008.[70]
