By William Francis Brown in Forest, VA.

Winning Category

This is my adaptation of a ca. 1870 Bellamy Eagle.

It is based on John Halley Bellamy's famous eagles carved in Kittery, Maine and Portsmouth, NH in the late 1800's.

I finished it with genuine 24k Gold-leaf and General Finishes 'Exterior 450 Water Based Clear Varnish'.

Originals sell at auction for $500,000-600,000!
