What a fantastic piece of true Indigenous art
hand carved, hand painted, gorgeous yellow cedar, designed and signed by First Nation artist Bear (Doug) Horne, Son of Doug LaFortune, a member of the Tsawout First Nation.
Simply an incredible piece, this makes every room! The Thunderbird itself is carved in very clean lines, very detailed, sanded and painted in vibrant colors, the background of the thunderbird is knife finished - not sanded, fantastic. The painting is close to perfection and the colors chosen gives it a very powerful expression. Then he added a black rim, he clearly has a great eye for design. Bear signed it at the back, it's made and prepared for wall hanging. The images don't do it justice.
29 1/2" diameter, 1" thick
Meaning: The Thunderbird symbolizes supernatural power and is believed to be the dominating force behind all of nature's 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
