Artist Statement : "I am of the Eagle Clan. One of my family crests is the Frog. The Frog is mainly a symbol of the presence of supernatural power. This expansive circular Frog design is the fourth in my personal series of silkscreen designs. The central figure with his hands protruding from beneath the Frog's chin is Tsek to the Tsimshian. Tsek is the mythical figure in stories which represent most all the mischief and cunningness imaginable." - Terry Starr
