Statue of a boy with a falcon in his left hand.
Only five years after it was unvleid, the sculpture was dismantled in 1944 to be melted down for war. However, in 1954 it was rediscovered. The bronze was found with many other artworks on the grounds of the North German Affinierie in Hamburg Alsterstraße. For Dahlienschau, on 17 September 1955, the falconry boy was set up again at the old location.
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.
