Artist Statement : "Both figures in this print are mythological. The supernatural Raven, in Human form, is from the Sky kingdom. You can see his Human legs and arms extending to the right of the design. The Frog is transforming into a Killerwhale. These animals represent the air, land and sea coming together. They are both messengers coming to tell their stories. Both the Raven and Frog are crest figures from the Hunt family." -as related to Vincent Rickard by Trevor Hunt
