Artist Statement : "The main theme of this print is the passing on and teaching of traditions. We all need a direction to follow and it is of great importance in the Ojibwa tradition to give young people guidance. The man represents humankind in the life cycle and the fish and water represent the oldest life-giving forces." (statement provided by Pacific Editions)
