This sculpture represents the now extinct giant eagle that once flew the skies of New Zealand.
The Moa was the eagles main food source, this started to run low and as a result it is believed to have caused its extinction.
The sculpture is carved from a beautiful New Zealand kokopu jade stone marked with flecks and dendrites. The eye insert is gold lipped Mother of pearl shell with a serpentine pupil.
It stands 14.3cm high and is 15.7cm wide across the base.
