Artist Statement : "This may or may not be what Thunderbird looks like. Seen here chasing the Killer Whale, its food source, beside a northwest canoe. Thunderbird gives us thunder and lightening through the flapping of its wings; we have never witnessed it in person. Can you see the Thunderbird?" - Dean Heron
