With the passing of Tiger, a nickname of Auburn's War Eagle VI, the successor of this proud university heritage has now taken over the perch and game-day flight duties.
Nova is the new War Eagle and is known as War Eagle VII. All official Auburn eagles have been golden eagles. Spirit, the bird that shares pregame duties with Nova, is the university's first bald eagle. Nova made its debut flight as War Eagle VII during the Georgia game in 2006. Born in captivity in the Montgomery Zoo in 1999, Nova came to Auburn when it was six months old. Spirit's first game flight was in 2001. It was discovered as a fledgling in Florida in 1995, unable to hunt for food because of a deformed beak.
Nova is artist Stephen Malkoff's latest collegiate icon in a series of renderings that has drawn nationwide acclaim. He has teamed with Auburn University's the College of Veterinary Medicine, and the Southeastern Raptor Center by creating this commemorative limited edition print of Nova. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Southeastern Raptor Center.
Handcrafted in the greatest detail, each print is signed and numbered by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Limited to only 3,000 prints and 30 giclées, this work of art will join another of his collectable prints.
This version of the art is framed in a carved bark wooden frame with double matting in school colors.
Prints are printed on 100% acid-free Strathmore paper. Museum-quality custom framing is also available.
