Artist Statement : "It is very difficult for me to tell you what is happening here because, to me, it is so basic, so natural to my understanding of what is around. To us (the Ojibwa people) everything in the world is balanced and ordered. Everything is in its place and inevitable. There is a harmony, with all living things (animals, birds, fish, trees, insects) operating together in the universe. In these prints, I have portrayed the life cycles (the continuing rebirth, the death of one means the birth of another) of all creatures." - Roy Thomas
