Artist Statement : "The sea otter is an animal native to the Northwest Coast. It feeds on fish and shellfish, staple food for its survival. To the Tsimshian, the sea otter is of special interest because it can transform itself into any other form as it wishes." (statement provided by Open Pacific Graphics)
