Salmon prince – a king salmon with a the prince inside, you can see the stages of development, starting with the salmon eggs, then the next stage of birth with the sac, and then a small alevin, life revolves in a cycle and all must return to Mother Earth. Each tribe has it ways to respect the salmon spirits, and sacred songs and blessing, for we are the ” people of the salmon”.  30 x 80 cm canvas , with story + bio.

The salmon prince, a long time ago a young prince took out of the food box a skin of a salmon which was kept too long and ate it, in some stories he fed it to others, he was scolded for taking this scarce food. he went away sad and sat near the river, soon a canoe came by him and he was taken away, by the salmon people. He journeyed to their village and there, he learned and was taught the ways to respect the spirits of the salmon, so that they could again return home to their villages, He was transported back to his village in a canoe, but in reality he was inside a salmon, some say a spring / king salmon, others a chum /dog salmon, and he was caught by the chief (his father), when they cut the salmon open a small human was inside, he grew rapidly and became a young man teaching the tribe, how to respect the salmon. After the people learned the proper ways, he went back to the village of salmon.
This is a very short version of the story, and the complete story comes with the painting.
