This black hawk is a new recently carved and polished figurative small sculpture. The medium is a fine-grained Slate. Hand carved and hand polished original piece by me Gabriella.
7.5″ x 4″ x 2.25″ 17.5 x 10 x 5.5 cm 0.586 kg.
The black hawk figurine was pinned and stone epoxy glued to the matching same stone base.
Signed, and an authentication certificate is attached. See it in 360.
Similar sizes and the same way carved and polished small sculptures are also available in my shop. I can also custom-carve your idea.
Buy it as a gift and I can personalize it by carving a name or short message to the base.
Slate is not a typical carving stone, however, this black stone is a smooth, unflaked specimen with a silvery sheen and is hard enough to achieve a satin shine.
Shale consists of clay and/or volcanic ash that has settled and spent millions of years subjected to the heat and pressure of the earth, has undergone low-level metamorphism and acquired its present form.
Slate is a fine-grained stone, when polished, it feels smooth, and non-absorbing, so moisture cannot damage the stone, but the sculpture is not recommended for outdoor display.
Due to its deposition, other minerals are sometimes visible on the surface and can form an impressive pattern.
