Joe Wilson has created this limited-edition print series illustrating the traditional Coast Salish whorl in which both the male and female Killerwhale are represented in balance and harmony with one another.
The ‘Journey of Hope’ was designed specifically for the survivors of the tsunami in Japan in 2011 to pay tribute to their survival instincts as well as their future hopes and dreams.
The Killerwhale is an important crest symbol, associated with power, strength, dignity and communication.
The Killerwhale is thought to be the reincarnation of great chiefs so they are the majestic protectors of mankind. Many believed that those lost at sea were carried away by the Orca to their villages deep within the ocean and they would be guided to a new life and a new beginning.
Killerwhale Clans live in Killerwhale Villages deep within the ocean; when at home they remove their skins and live as large humans. Mating once for life and thought to be the reincarnation of great chiefs, these majestic animals are the protectors of mankind. While known to capsize canoes and carry the inhabitants to their Killerwhale Village, they are also reputed to act as guides to humans caught within storms.
