Hvalreki

Hard ground etching based on a sketch of a Fin Whale foetus at Grants Museum of Zoology. My research took me to study the ways of the Inuit culture, particularly in the Arctic regions where whales are worshipped as well as hunted. That respectful, balanced way of life is brought into stark contrast with the explorers of the Western world, who staked their claim over both land and living creatures.
