Thunderbird & Orca Statement Pendant
Please allow 3 - 6 weeks for production and delivery. As all pieces are individually hand-carved, please allow for slight stylistic variations.
The Thunderbird represents power, protection, and strength. By creating rainstorms he waters the earth, making it possible for vegetation to grow. He is said to be so large that his wingspan is as large as two canoes, and that he could easily carry a killer whale out of the water with his talons. Only the most powerful and successful chiefs and families use the Thunderbird in their crest.
The Orca is a popular symbol for romance as they mate for life. Legend says that Orcas can capture a canoe, take it underwater, and transform the occupants into Whales. Thus, a Whale near the shore is a transformed human trying to communicate with his family.
