"Thunderbird" in White Forton
The thunderbird is a legendary creature in certain North American indigenous peoples' history and culture. It is considered a supernatural being of power and strength. It is especially important, and frequently depicted, in the art, songs and oral histories of many Pacific Northwest Coast cultures, but is also found in various forms among some peoples of the American Southwest, East Coast of the United States, Great Lakes, and Great Plains.
This carving was created under close tutelage of my current teacher and mentor Rick Adkins and is dedicated to my Daughter who herself belongs to the Thunderbird Clan.
