Description


Thunderbird Canoe’ by Dean HeronFirst Nations Northwest Coast Tlingit Art presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.


Condition:       no condition noted.


Description by Artist:   “This may or may not be what a Thunderbird looks like. Seen here, Thunderbird is chasing the Killer Whale, its food source, beside a northwest canoe.

Thunderbird gives us thunder and lightning through the flapping of its wings. We have never witnessed it in person. Can you see the Thunderbird?”


Notes from DaVic Gallery This limited edition silkscreen print titled Thunderbird Canoe by Dean Heron was published in May 2006. The prints were hand produced by the screen-printing process. It is the only limited edition printing of this design. The artist was involved in the printmaking, checking the stencils and signing each copy in the edition: 200 signed and numbered copies, 20 artist’s proofs and 1 printer’s proof.  Three Hors de Commerce copies exist and are defaced. All other trial copies as well as the printing stencils have been destroyed.
