Description by Artist:

Notes from DaVic Gallery:    this print, influenced by Doug Cranmer, was originally painted in 1978 and depicts a combination of different merging animals. This technique of having different animals intertwined stems from the ancient idea of transforming soul and connected spirits.  This strong and bold contemporary Kwagulth design is a good example of the creative abilities of this young artist.
