Falconer

The ancient art of falconry is narrated through our Falconer pen, airbrushed by the famous artist Claudio Mazzi.

“Sometimes I observed a pair of hawks flying in a circle, high in the sky, hovering and then descending, approaching and then abandoning themselves, as if they were the embodiment of my thoughts.”

 

Henri David Thoreau

AN ARABIC ORIGIN ART

Falconry was already popular several millennia BC in the Middle East and the Persian Gulf. All Arabic classes practised falconry and bequeathed it to subsequent generations. Many Arabic poems praise this noble art, and the Koran itself authorises falconry as a method of hunting: patience, endurance, self-confidence and courage can be learned from falcons.

A NOBLE PASSION

According to various testimonies, Lorenzo de’ Medici was a passionate follower of the art of falconry. Some portraits show him hunting with other nobles, and many letters praise his interest in the peregrine falcon. The history of falconry also goes back to Emperor Frederick II, who introduced the use of the cape, replacing the traumatic technique of the falcon’s eyelids suture.
