Grouse Dancer, 3D Sculpture by Kwakiulth First Nation artist John Henry Hunt.
Easy recognizable. The details are remarkable, John Henry spent so much time on each piece and puts so much effort into it. You can clearly see his love for this art. He uses vibrant colors, and always masters the expression which can be very difficult. He's playful with his colors but always uses light green and blue, the colors his uncle Tony Hunt Jr. used.
Measurements: 13" high (incl. cedar bark), 16" wingspan, the base is 4" x 4"

Meaning: The grouse plays an important part in ceremonies of the First Nations of the Pacific Northwest. The dance of the grouse is about protection, bravery and courage. The grouse uses lots of fluster and flapping to appear bigger and to crab attention away from their young should danger be near. It’s therefor also seen in healing and other sacred ceremonies. The grouse represents the great dance of life: Joy, power, healing and protection, but always careful and never to adventurous, always warning you to listen to and trust your inner spirits (gut feeling). Grouse will without hesitation sacrifice themselves to protect their young and is a very giving creature.
