A late 19th century alabaster falcon, carved standing upon a rock and having blue glass eyes.

In Chinese culture, the falcon represents keen vision, boldness and swiftness; Europeans believe that it symbolises liberty, victory and freedom - be it spiritual, moral or emotional; and in ancient Egypt the bird embodies the human soul. It may be concluded that the positive connotation of the falcon is more or less a worldwide phenomenon. In this tradition, this alabaster piece will surely bestow upon its owner grace and humanity.
