"How 'bout that Hawk?" is the question of the day when you cast your eyes on the University of Iowa's formidable cast stone rendition of Herky the Hawk, crafted by the sculptors of stonemascots.com. Herky is sure to be the hit of any Hawkeye gathering all the way from Davenport to Sioux City and anywhere throughout the nation, for that matter.

Herky was first drawn as a cartoon in 1948. He made his initial appearance in person at a mid-1950s Iowa football contest. A proud representative of the Hawkeye State, Herky's name was taken as shorter representation of "Hercules". Since then, Herky the Hawk and Iowa intercollegiate athletics are synonymous.

There's not an ounce of fat on this solid, 66-pound Iowa bird of prey as he marches onward to another Hawkeye victory, his arm raised in triumph. The highest quality cast stone goes into Herky's manufacturing process as he is finished off in the proud Iowa colors of black and gold. Also available in vintage and bronze finishes. You'll be just as proud having the unstoppable hawk in your home or at any Hawkeye event as you gather around Herky and proclaim "It's great to be a Hawkeye!"
