The Sculpture emerged from a vision about Thunderbird. The artist saw Thunderbird looking down from his home high in the mountains. Since he is an extremely powerful creature, he began to move the water so it shone like diamonds, luring the curious salmon up the river from their sea homes to provide an abundance of food for those living along the river. The Thunderbird shone and in a mischievous spirit, stirred up the waters, propelling the river currents to great speeds. This is the great force that is now harness it to create electricity, while the rivers continue to feed and sustaining the life below with the spawning salmon. The imagery was the basis around the concept that became Thunderbird Sharing Energy.
