Artist Statement : The octopus is indigenous to the Northwest Coast of B.C. and is sought after as a delicacy by the natives in this area. Although not as common as some other sea creatures, the octopus figures in a number of legends, both as a benevolent and awe-inspiring animal. (statement provided by Open Pacific Graphics)
