Description

Knight in Shining Armour. He is larger than life, stands 1.85m tall.

Originally designed as a display item for 'Black Knight Liquorice'. He has guarded Wingspan for over 15 years, and needs a new home.

He is a one-off fibreglass model with real (blunt) metal sword. Removable face guard, and then he looks like Buzz Lightyear, quite possibly Scott Robertson of the BNZ Crusaders :).

Six months ago he was painted and retouched by Warren Houston, famous mural artist and signwriter of Rotorua.

A great prop for theatre, pantomime, medieval events, grand entrance for home or restaurant. You could also repaint the shield and personalise with your own family crest. He could also be a good paperweight.

This item does not include the falcon ;)

This item is part of the Garage Sale by Wingspan National Bird of Prey Centre. All items specifically donated by the generosity of members. ALL proceeds directly to the Wingspan raptor conservation programme.

    Yes, this could work if costs are covered, not quite "overknight" delivery, but possible! :Phawker05(110)• Tuesday, 9 July 2019

    Hi As this would be visible from all sides, and in case our bid was 'sir-fice', could we please have an overall back view plus closer ones of the top rear and the bottom rear. Would pass by to look but we are a way away. Thank yougonzo86(131)04:58 pm, Thu, 11 Jul

    Our Knight is increasing the engagement for the Wingspan program, specifically raising funds for the new visitor centre. So if you would like to support the conservation of New Zealand birds of prey you can visit, or check out the website https://www.wingspan.co.nz/wingspan_bird_of_prey_centre_donations.html Thank you!Seller comment Thursday, 11 July 2019
