Artist Statement : "The first person asked the spirit what do I have in the sea? Great spirit sent the Whale. Whale is the crest figure of the Wolf Clan. 'Lakebu' is the name of the Wolf Clan, my grandfather's clan." - Wayne Young. "This is the second in a series of Nisga'a clan figures. There are four major clan crests among the Nisga'a of the Nass River Valley. Each family in a Nisga'a village is a member of one of these clans. There are many stories associated with each clan. Half of this edition has been printed on white paper and half has been printed on beige paper." Statement provided by Vincent Rickard, Pacific Editions.
