Large THUNDERBIRD - by master artist Watawidi, Tom D. Hunt, a member of the Kwakiulth First Nations from Vancouver Island, BC. 

This piece is as good as it gets. The carving on it is just spectacular, so close to perfection! The carvings lines are deep and I don't even know what to say about it - it's just a magical piece and the expression is majestic, elegant and VERY powerful. I will let the images speek for themselves....

The Thunderbird mask is huge. It's prepared for wall hanging, but looks fabulous as a centrepiece in every room.
