Add to Cart

A behind-the-scenes look at how Floyd Scholz creates one of his most ambitious pieces - a life-size Golden Eagle in flight. Beautiful color photos document the carving's progression from a block of wood to a finished work of art. Accompanying text offers how-to information as well as Scholz's thoughts as he works on the carving. Includes preliminary sketches and notes, candid studio shots, work-in-progress images, corrections, and journal entries. A unique look at the creative process that will inspire carvers, artists, and bird-lovers alike.

"Only when the artist has all of this information can

work begin to turn the thought in a dream into the

solid form of a sculpture. I promise you that when

the last page of this book is turned, you will know

everything you could possibly need to know about

the look of this most magnificent of all birds, the

Golden Eagle."
