Artist Statement : "When you look at the Sun in a wider, universal perspective, it is like a bright light shining in the darkness. Seen here are two symbolic figures of a male and a female salmon. They are seen here in an eternal circle representing the marriage of the pair. The Salmon represents the continuously renewing and bountiful gifts and blessings that we get in life."
