Lambswool Blanket - Hummingbird
Artist: Kanata Blanket Co.
Kanata presents the Hummingbird Country Lambswool throw, which features the individual Hummingbird design from Randy Wisla embroidered onto our super-soft micro fur Country Lambswool Throw.
A Kanata blanket expresses appreciation with a high-quality gift that people will love to receive, and our Country Lambswool continues to be one of our top-selling throws for just this reason.
“Classy gift, great quality, cozy and warm and washes up beautifully.” Both men and women have been delighted to receive the Country Lambswool.
In Native American culture, the Hummingbird signifies peace, love, joy and happiness. Hummingbirds are depicted in their symbol as a mated pair and represent devotion, eternity and life. The Hummingbird is able to fly backwards, teaching us that we can look back on our past, but that we must not dwell on it — we need to move forward. This creature is the one that opens the heart. When the hurt that caused us to close our hearts gets a chance to heal, our hearts are free to open again. Many Native Americans see the Hummingbird as a symbol of good luck. Randy Wisla himself describes Hummingbirds as “joyful messengers who represent peace, affection and good fortune. The Hummingbird is a living rainbow that captures the sunlight and turns it into a jewel on its wings, signifying love, beauty and healing.”
As part of Kanata’s art collection, Indigenous artist Randy Wisla incorporates his simple yet elegant Hummingbird design onto this delightfully snug and super-soft Country Lambswool Throw.
Reversible, self-hemmed throw. Micro fur reversed with super-soft faux lambswool.
About the Artist
Randy Wisla, proud member of the Carrier Nation of North Central British Columbia, finds personal strength and inspiration from his culture and his elders. As the son of established Northwest Coast Native carver Charles Harper, he developed his creative skills early in life by sketching with pencils and pastels. The process of deconstructing the world and reconstructing it through a piece of art was taught to Randy through his apprenticeship with his father. For Randy, there are no creative limits to his work as an artist.
