Native American Hand Painted Thunderbird Cow Skull - H U N T E D F O X

Native American Hand Painted Thunderbird Cow Skull

The thunderbird is a legendary creature in certain North American Native tribes history and culture. It is considered a supernatural being of power and strength. It is especially important, and frequently depicted, in the art, songs and oral histories of many Pacific Northwest cultures, but is also found in various forms among some peoples of the American Southwest, East Coast of the US  Great Lakes & the Great Planes.

In the sacred Black Hills, the Lakota ceremonial season begins with the Return of the Thunder Beings (known as Wakinyan to the Lakota people) and is announced by the presence of thunder, lightening, and rain.

It is believed their return (which also marks the beginning of Spring) can bring an extraordinary celebration of life – migrating animals and birds reappear, buffalo emerge from their winter camps, hibernating creatures wake, and the plants and flowers began to bloom.

In honor of the sacred cycle of life, we have hand painted added feathers, hand carved bone, brass and turquoise beading and wrapped soft leather around the base of the horns.  An incredible adornment to a table or a wall.  

Item is prepared to hang.  

Each one is a one of a kind and is signed and numbered by the artist James Geordan.
