Artist Statement : "This print illustrates a legend about a dog that is crouched on the edge of a pool of water. He is dying of thirst but every time he goes to drink he sees his own reflection and is frightened by it. Finally his need for water overcomes his fear and he drinks from the pool, thereby destroying the image of his imaginary foe." Statement provided by Vincent Rickard, Pacific Editions.
