Emory, the Peregrine Falcon by Nambroth Emory, the Peregrine Falcon by Nambroth

Meet Emory, the Peregrine Falcon!

Emory here is a small "soft" sculpture, and is completely original and one of a kind. Emory looks a little grumpy, but don't be fooled, it's just those dark broody falcon eyes that give the impression.

Emory has been hand crafted using epoxy, glass eyes, a wire armature, foam, and faux fur (no real fur used!), paint, and glue.

Emory is 4" tall.

That's amazing! At first glance, and until I read the description, I thought it was a real bird (all right, I did think there was something strange about it but I....um...)

Once again, your work is incredible! I didn't realize this wasn't an actual bird in the thumbnail. Instead, I thought to myself: "I had no idea there were birds with that eye-body relation!" :D
Anyway, Emory is adorable. Great job. :rose:

I have to give you my congratulations. The icon looked like a real animal.

The actual picture a lot less, for obvious reasons =P (which you probably know very well, since the purpose of this craft seems to be just making a cute animal for fun, not actual reproduction of an animal for other purposes like taxidermy and stuff)

But then again the vast majority of people making crafts do not fool me even at icon level so congratulations! :D

You're welcome :) as a longwing loving falconer, he was too hard to pass up. I love your work and was so excited to see he was still available :)

It'll be a him, I'm really partial to tiercels as it's the bird I became a falconer for! I haven't had a chance to fly one in my 5 years now but the time's coming soon I think that I'll leave the East in search for better longwing country and that's when I'll have the chance.

He'll have a good home and be very appreciated!

How lovely! Please forgive my ignorance, but tiercels are only male Peregrines, right? Or does the term refer to all male falcons?

Tiercel is specifically the male peregrine. The term is now used widely throughout the falconry community for any male (that doesn't have a name of it's own) though male is a LOT shorter to both say and type ;) it's a shame, really, that the term is used so often incorrectly. It mostly happens with the Americsn falconers, as the ones I've encountered from Europe and Africa only use the term for the male peregrine.
