Falcon Returns!
Exclusive First Look at New Maltese Falcon

With major media set to report later today and tomorrow, Mister SF offers the world's first look at a new Maltese Falcon sculpture to be displayed permanently at San Francisco landmark restaurant John's Grill beginning later this year. The new sculpture is being created by Academy of Art University Head Sculptor Peter Schifrin and is intended to replace a souvenir falcon sculpture that had been displayed at John's Grill for many years before being snatched in February, 2007.
