Godfrey Hunt, Kwakiutl Tribe, Thunderbird Totem Carving, 1967. Godfrey Hunt was a Canadian First Nations master carver from the Kwakiutl tribe and nephew of renowned carver Henry Hunt from Alert Bay on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. He apprenticed with his uncle at the Victoria Thunderbird Park Project.
This totem measures approximately 13" tall, 4.75" wide, and 4.5" deep. It appears to be carved from cedar and shows appropriate wear & patina for its age. It is is overall very-good conditions with the noted exception being old damage to the ears of the Thunderbird which has already oxidized. The damage is visible in the photos. The signature on the base of the totem is strong and appears to be in pencil.
