I was inspired by a photograph of a Northern Harrier created by Ron Dudley of Feathered Photography, to draw what I have always called a Marsh Hawk. One flies past our house just about every morning, hunting for small animals to eat. The eaten animals inside this bird do not represent specific species, they are just what I imagined he might be preying upon. Northern Harriers have a distinct white patch on their rump, and I like how the rabbit's white tail matches up with that.

This is a fine art rubber stamp designed and made by Steven Vander Meer in Humboldt County, California. The die is deeply etched natural red vulcanized rubber, which is hand trimmed and adhered to red sponge cushion (the good kind, not the self-adhesive kind). The cushion is also trimmed by hand and then mounted to a smoothly sanded and oiled Maple block, with a clear black index printed on the top. The MEER IMAGE name is hot iron branded onto the end-grain of the block, and the SVM personal signature chop is added to the top of the block in red ink (space permitting).

Mount Type:Maple hardwood block indexed in black and finished with linseed oil. Block Width:3.5 inches Block Length:4.5 inches Block Thickness:3/4 inch Image Size:Approximately 1/4 inch less than block size
