Kolus (in the artist's words: "Thunderbird's little bro")

Measurements: 14 1/2" x 8" x 1/2" 

Meaning: Kwakwaka'wakw First Nations peoples say their ancestors (‘na’mima) came in the forms of animals by way of land, sea, or underground. When one of these ancestral animals arrived at a given spot, it discarded its animal appearance and became human. Animals that figure in these original myths include the Thunderbird and his younger brother the Kolus, the Seagull, the Orca, the grizzly bear and the Chief ghost. Some ancestors have human origins and are said to come from distant places.
