Lidded Box, showing Thunderbird on each side, hand carved, hand painted by female master artist Sarah Robertson. 

The box is carved all around, on all 4 sides, the painting in powerful black and red against the gorgeous yellow of the sugar pine, so clean with very deep lines. The expression and detailing in the characters itself is gorgeous. It's signed underneath.  Sarah is fully hand crafting these boxes. The box is signed underneath. 

Measurements: top of lid: 7 1/4" x 7 1/4", 7" tall, the opening measured on the inside is 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" 

Meaning: The Thunderbird symbolizes supernatural power and is believed to be the  dominating force behind all of natures doings. It's  a mythical creature and only the most prestigious and powerful Chiefs are allowed to have the Thunderbird as a crest especially among the Kwagiulth, Nuu-Chah-Nulth and Coast Salish people.
