Perched Bluebird of Happiness Tsalagi Cherokee Made

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


This is the ultimate happy bluebird, or tsa-quo-la-de in Cherokee. Rich, rustic, tribal and yet at the same time, thoroughly modern. Hand painted on both sides in cobalt blue with tone on tone swirls and circles reminiscent of Cherokee pottery designs. This wooden bluebird is ready to take flight. The stylized wing, rendered abstractly in dots and swirls, is with hand painted in Cherokee lettering that says “A-la-wi-di-ha” -- Fly Away! Whether for a bookshelf at home, or a desk at the office, one look at this jewel colored little bird will remind anyone of the free spirit of the Cherokee people.

The bird measures 6 inches from the top of its head to the rustic wire feet and 7.5 inches long from the tip of the beak to the tip of the tail. A piece of art, each bird is hand painted. There may be subtle differences in shade and design, making each bird unique!
