This Artist Proof Print is called Thunderbird and Sculpin by Trevor Hunt, Kwakiutl or Kwakwaka´wakw Native Artist from the Pacific West Coast. This print is from an Artist Proof edition of 20 prints.
The Thunderbird Symbol represents power, protection, and strength. He is often seen as the most powerful of all spirits and can also transform into human form by opening his head up like a mask and taking his feathers off as if they were a mere blanket. Under his wings are lightning snakes, which he can use as a tool or weapon.
