Painting by Henk Slijper which Frits Kleyn commissioned in 1987 and shows Fritse's falcons at Braemoray Estate in Moray-shire in Scotland. Recently Johan Kolman who has been working together with Henk Slijper for many years has done some restoration to it and it looks fantastic, regretfully this picture taking by Frits Kleyn doesn't really justify the painting.
The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
