Thunderbird Velura Blanket - Black

Its time to get cozy with Kanata's super soft, super snugly coral Velura blanket, embroidered with Debra Sparrow's simple yet powerful Thunderbird design. As part of Kanata's art collection Native artist Debra Sparrow incorporates her effectual Thunderbird on to this delightfully snug Velura throw. The perfect way to incorporate a powerful cultural design on a super soft blanket into your home. The Thunderbird is a Native American symbol of creation marking the separation between the heavens and the earth. As the Creator, Destroyer and Controller of Nature the Thunderbird must be honored and appeased at all cost. Some view the Thunderbird as a supreme Nature Spirit. It's eyes were said to be made from the sun, and upon waking in the morning, the Thunderbird issued the dawning day. Alternatively when the Thunderbird retired at night, its sleepily closing eyes marked the solar dusk. Others view the Thunderbird as an omen of war; when the cry of the Thunderbird was heard (in the form of thunder in the skies) war huts were constructed to begin ceremonial processions. These huts were always made with the wood of the cedar tree, sacred to the bird.
