DESCRIPTION: The Harpy eagle sometimes know as American harpy eagle is the largest raptor found in Americas also it is largest eagle in the world. It inhabits tropical lowland rainforests but regularly visit pasture or semi-open forests and could be found from Mexico to Argentina. Graceful bird with steal black feathers on the upper side and the underside is mostly white. The head is pale gray and crowned with double crest, that bird could ruffle then it excited. . The iris is gray or brown or red, the cere and bill are black or blackish and the tarsi and toes are yellow. A pair of harpy eagles usually only raise one or two chick every 2–3 years. Nowadays Harpy eagle is qualifies as near threatened species. Where are less then 50 000 individual of them on our planet. It is sounds not so bad as it is. I was inspired by that mighty eagle and try to show their power and majesty. Using variety materials I try to show the many texture from leaves to feathers, and to convey the general
condition of art.
