Item Details
Description
Randy Stiglitz (Native Canadian, 1953) Attributed: Thunderbird. Painted wood mask with leather hinges, inscribed inside the bottom of the beak. Yellow beak with born highlights on green and black head.

Randy Stiglitz was born in 1956 on the Capilano Reservation in North Vancouver, British Columbia. He began carving in the early 1970s during the first resurgence in Northwest Coast art and culture. Randy moved to Victoria for four years to study and carve with the large number of Kwakwaka'wakw artists living in the area. He studied with Gene Brabant and John Livingston at the Hunt family studio. Both of these artists carved from a scholarly and formal point of reference. They were interested in analyzing the stylistic attributes of each of the major historical artists and translating these elements into their own work. Randy returned to Vancouver and began carving on a full-time basis. He continues to carve in the Kwakwaka'wakw style.

15 x 9.5 x 10 inches.

Acquired in a private sale 1977, Victoria British Columbia; Private collection
