The baby eagle waits in its nest for one of its parents to bring it food.

Always looking to stay ahead of the competition and keep copyists on their toes, Royal continually experiments with new styles and finishes - and this piece is exceptional and one that Royal was personally particularly proud of.

Springstone is a particularly good sculpture medium, as it has a very even internal structure of small grains of rock, and is therefore perfect for Royal's detailed style of sculpting.
