Northwest Coast Native Art of the Thunderbird

The thunderbird has been a legendary figure in Native culture for hundreds of years. It has also been a subject in mainstream culture where it has been everything from a kids TV show to the name of a classic North American car. More background of the this legendary bird is at the Native American Thunderbird article.

At present, there are two Northwest Coast Native art carvings of thunderbirds at Free Spirit Gallery, both by master carver Cody Mathias of Squamish Nation. These beautiful carvings are at the Northwest Coast Native Art Bird Carvings section of the gallery.
