Etched Thunder Bird
The thunderbird is a legendary creature in certain North American indigenous peoples' history and culture. It is considered a supernatural being of power and strength.
Starting out with raw copper, I hand saw the image. After careful cleaning and drawing on the detailed design, it is then etched in an etching compound. Patina is added last to bring out the design and the wonderful subtle glow of the copper.
I love how this piece has a quiet strength about it.
