American Bald Eagle Re-Creation

bald eagle art

Into the Wild is honored to offer this American Bald Eagle re-creation! This exceptional piece of wildlife art is sure to be the centerpiece of any game room, restaurant, bar/grill or museum!
Wildlife artist, Jim Day, has painstakingly created this masterpiece of an American Bald Eagle with a Brown Trout held in its’ powerful talons! You might ask how it is that we can possess and sell this beautiful work of art as it is a violation of Federal law to even possess a single feather from a Bald Eagle. The answer is simple, not a single feather, or any other part of a real Eagle was used in this ultra-realistic work of art. The re-creation comes with a numbered and registered Federal Eagle leg band certifying its authenticity as a re-creation as well as a document certifying it as a re-creation by Jim Day. This piece of art stands approximately 42 inches tall atop a hand crafted wood pedestal.
This item will be on display during the auction. The picture above is a sample of the actual item. You really need to take a close look at the detail in each and every feather, the beak and talons! Many people own bronze statues of American Bald Eagles. Few own a life-size, re-creation of a true symbol of freedom, power and our great Nation!
