This sculpture is that of an American kestral diving down on a dragonfly in the cat tails at a pond. It is that moment when the little falcon spots the dragonfly and makes a tight turn to get it.
Wing Speed (Peregrine falcon) and Headin' Home (Red tail hawk)

Brent Cooke, in our opinion, is the best artist in the world who produces birds of prey in bronze. We have the honor of owning the first casting of two of Brent’s work – Wing Speed and Headin’ Home. At our cocktail parties, his works always become the focus of conversation for many guests. I know we are not alone in singing his praises. The Prime Minister of Bahrain sent a jet to Chicago to buy and bring home a casting of Wing Speed so it could be showcased in the President’s castle. We look forward to many more works of art from this exceptional artist. Cheers, John & Donalda, Victoria, B.C.
