Eagles seem to be a very popular bird - I think because of the spirit of freedom and strength they represent. I guess it was for those reasons that my Mother requested that I make her an eagle for Christmas. One of the most time consuming projects I have attempted, it started as a very basic wire frame with a single layer of wing feathers, and I just kept adding feathers until I thought it was finished. The feathers are long pieces of wire that are looped around a piece of card and then flattened out. This eagle is 15cm high, 19cm deep, and has a wingspan of 34cm (6 x 7.5 x 13.4 inches). It was completed on Christmas eve 1997 (just in time!).
