Artist Statement : "A frog came and spoke to me at exactly 3:08 a.m. outside, reassuring me that my Salish heritage and design were well worth the struggle in the making." - Joseph Wilson "Frogs are important in all Northwest Coast cultures. Because of their ability to move between land and sea, they are a representation of all the transformations that take place in Native beliefs." Statement provided by Vincent Rickard, Pacific Editions.
