Cousin to the Red Tailed Hawk, Chickenhawk butterflies are a common prey species, though they rarely prey on standard sized chickens. Because they are so common and easily trained as capable hunters, they are captured for falconry, just like their red-tailed hawk cousin. What a great fairy tale. There really is no such thing as a chickenhawk butterfly, but it sure makes for a great story.

Country Chickenhawk Butterfly is layered in brown, tan, rust, yellow-orange and cream glazes to match the beautiful markings of the red tailed hawk and bring fairy tale into existence. Chickenhawk is also top-coat glazed in a beautiful opalescence to shimmer like the dark outline feathers of the red-tailed hawk.

Chickenhawk's block is hand painted in layers of matte colors and then each layer is sanded down to the base coat to give it a rustic, distressed finish. This block began with a base of asphaltum, a rusty brown, topped with raw sienna and then was finished with a top coat of warm cream.

Country Chickenhawk Butterfly measures 5-3/4 inches tall, 5-1/2 inches wide and 4 inches deep. The block includes a hanging hole on the back for wall display.

Country Chickenhawk Butterfly makes for a great conversation piece to tell friends and visitors, similar to the jackalope tale. Chickenhawk was created to bring a smile and just be unique and beautiful wherever its displayed. Do you believe in Country Chickenhawk Butterflies? Clap three times and they may just appear....
