Edition of 12 This bronze depicts the Killer Whale (Orca) with a Wolf transformation design on the tail. There is also a human representation within the blowhole. "The orca has the ability to transform back and forth from wolf to whale to hunt the land and the ocean. Both creatures travel in packs. If you had an orca as a spirit guide you would be a great fisherman. If you had a wolf as a spirit guide you’d be a great hunter." - Luke Marston
