Artist Statement : This print illustrates the transformation of a supernatural white wolf into a killer whale. The legend explains why killer whales are half black and travel in groups as do wolves. The red tail of the wolf is also the water spout of the whale. This is the second print illustrating this theme that Joe has published. (statement provided by Open Pacific Graphics)
