Artist Statement : "Robert gives us a stylistic rendering of the mallard duck about to complete what we know will be an easy, graceful landing. While the mallard does not figure in Robert's Gitksan/Carrier mythology, it's continuing appeal lies in its power to conjure up pleasing images of being peacefully at home in nature."
