This is a powerful painted and carved sculpture inspired by the legend of how the beaver and the mink came to bring salmon to the rivers of the Northwest. The "original" size photograph is just TOO large, but you should scroll down and click on it just to see how amazing it is.

The piece is two-sided; I found a high-res image of the other side of the work at Flickr. Click on "All Sizes" to enlarge it.
