Artist Statement : "Three hours west of Port Alberni on the west coast is Copper Island. Some years ago this small island was purchased by a philanthropist who wanted to ensure that a campground be maintained for christians. While celebrating his birthday there last July, Joe saw numerous eagles and was inspired to create this design." Statement provided by VIncent Rickard, Pacific Editions.
