A full grown bird is about 1metre (1 yard) long. The largest bird of prey in Australia.
This design looks spectacular when blown up to life size.
All those feathers in the wings aren't as difficult to make as you may first think. Adjoining feathers of the same colour are initially cut out of one piece. These few large pieces of wood are fitted together to make the whole wing. Only then are they divided up into the individual feathers.
Still a fair amount of work to finish it off but well worth the effort.
