video: How to carve a falcon from a block of stone

→ to the first post about this project

A look into the process from weathered down statuette to copy in new stone, and insight into a number of the tools and (measuring-) techniques I used. The Falcon in this case was originally from the Valckeniershuis (Falconer's house) in Franeker, the Netherlands, and the original dates from 1662. The copy was carved in Bentheimer sandstone just as the original, and stands at 63 cms tall.
