Drawing

Physical description

On the front-side of part a is a poem, written in pencil, in both Nuu-chah-nulth and English. The poem on part a is horizontally oriented. To the right of the poem is the machine-printed descriptive information for the drawing printed on the reverse-side of the poem. On the reverse-side of part a is the left half of a whale print by the artist. The whale is a blue-grey colour. An open, red human-like hand is depicted at the end of the pectoral fin. A being with a yellow eye, red mouth, and grey tongue is positioned in the center of the whale's body. On the front-side of part b is a story, written in pencil, about a girl singing a tsiikyak and then jumping off of a cliff. The story is written vertically on the paper. The reverse-side of the story is the right half of the whale print. The right half of the whale mirrors the left half (part a) with the exception that the red human-like hand on the right half grips a black raven. Printed in the bottom of part b, near the whale's tail, is the artist's signature and two lines of text.
