Debra Sparrow© Thunderbird Embroidered on Black Plush Velura™ Throw Blanket
Thunderbird Velura™ Throw. Soft, plush Velura™ fabric throw, embroidered with Debra Sparrow's simple yet powerful Thunderbird design. 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.
The Thunderbird is a supreme Nature Spirit. Its eyes were made from the sun and, upon waking in the morning, the Thunderbird issued the dawning day. When retiring at night, its sleepily closing eyes marked the onset of dusk.
