Artist Statement : "There was an old man, an Elder of my tribe, standing on a beach. Several whales beached themselves, and as the man watched, they shape shifted into wolves and walked off into the forest. That's why this image looks a little 'wolfish'." - William Wasden Jr. "The Killerwhale is depicted diving strait forward, and was originally painted on a drum."
