Artist Statement : Within this print Eugene Hunt depicts a family of wolves underneath a full moon. The full moon is shown in the form of a human face, looking below. Wolves, as social animals, are well known to travel in packs. A full moon can affect many creatures, and its effect on a wolf pack can be heard in their howls from miles away. The wolf is one of the central crest figures of the Kwakwaka'wakw people from Kingcome Inlet, and they figure prominently in the history and stories of this area. As the original painting for this drum design was painted on a drum, the print has a circular, light beige wash background. (Statement provided by Pacific Editions)
