Information from Peter Barry Peters - one of FHT Directors:

The statue is by George Blackall-Simonds (1843-1929), founder of the British Falconers Club. It is a smaller version of the famous larger than life size bronze erected in Central Park, New York City, in 1873. Several room size versions of this statue exist, one I believe is in the Norwich Museum (UK) and another is still owned by Simonds' decendants.

About Us

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.
