Thunderbird by Doug Horne
Note: Prices are CAD
Simple, elegant and so pure in expression - What a nice piece by master artist Doug (Bear) Horne from the Coast Salish First Nation
This piece can be hung up on the wall since it's not carved at the back or it does great just standing on the fireplace mantle or wherever you see fit. The carving is excellent. It's treated with oil and polished pine - gorgeous piece of Indigenous Art and perfect to start a collection.
Measurements: 13" x 6" x 1" (33 x 15 x 2.5 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.
