Thunder and Lightning
I wanted to blend two storied traditions with this piece, Form line and Ravens tail weaving . In one side you see the Thunderbird face in side profile with a glimpse of his human form in the nostril . On the other you see the zig zag pattern that represents lightning in Northern geometric weaving . I wanted to chase this piece as well to give it the dimension and depth that i felt it deserved. And I oxidized it too to echo how Ravens tail weaving looks.
