You can clearly see this was carved by a master of this art with many years of experience

Little Thunderbird by Alfred Robertson from the Kwakiulth First Nation, Kingcome Inlet, British Columbia's Pacific Northwest Coast.

The carving is as always, just superb, very detailed, deep and clean carving lines, carved in front, signed and prepared for wall hanging at the back - a great start for any collection or it just makes a great gift!

Measurements: 11" x 4 1/2" x 1 1/2" (28 x 11.5 x 4 cm)

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
