A human, with an eye nose and teeth of a human face sits in the body. The Killer Whale is portrayed jumping from the ocean with the water flowing off of its body. Salmon in this design ore significant because they were and are still the building blocks of West Coast list. Every year the Salmon would return to the rivers of the BC Coast.

They feed Man, Eagles, Killer Whales, Bears, and even the great Cedars as they enrich the soil along our watersheds.
