Thunderbird And Whale
An original acrylic painting of Thunderbird and Whale depicting the legend of the immensity of the mythological creature in relation to the very real, much smaller killer whale.
"The Thunderbird was so immense that the only food that could sustain him was either 'Whale' or 'Killer Whale'. The struggles to save our songs, our dances and our art are well documented throughout our First Nations history. So I decided to paint my version of those stories from the time when the Thunderbird roamed the earth." -Cecil Dawson, Kwakwaka'wakw Nation
Medium: Original Acrylic Painting on Canvas
