Wood Thunderbird Panel by Northwest Coast Native Artist Don Yeomans

Chilkat Thunderbird Panel

Availability: Only 1 available

Yellow Cedar wood, Acrylic paint

I began designing Chilkat-style carvings in around 2005. At the time, they served two purposes: Firstly, the style is derived from Chilkat blankets, which I admire greatly. Secondly, the sources of wood at the time were giving carvers very colourful boards. [They were] still good carving material, but too much power to the wood – like carving a beautiful laminated cutting board, in that no matter what you carved, the light and dark stripes of the wood are all you see. This board had a lot of colourful pieces of wood, so I had to show it who was boss!” – Don Yeomans
