New Eagle Carving Unveiled at World Center for Birds of Prey

16 May 2007
Visitors to the World Center for Birds of Prey have been fooled by a new art installation in the center's lobby. The life-size wood carving of a Bald Eagle in flight is so precise that it is easy to believe it could have once been a live raptor.

Titled "Power and Grace," the artwork by renowned wildlife artist Jim Robison of Hopedale, Illinois, is valued at $250,000. It was donated to The Peregrine Fund by Dick Uihlein, a sportsman and patron of wildlife arts from Chicago, Illinois.
