Hand pulled by the Artist at Sitka, Alaska, on an Ettan etching press 8.10.97.
Note: the certificate of authenticity (COA) states this as a regular edition of 25, but it's clearly numbered on front as an edition of 15. On the artist proof, the two ravens are engraved and not embossed (which are difficult to accurately photograph for display purposes).
A fight to the death between an Eskimo hunter and a polar bear. The two ravens overhead are keeping an eye on things. They don't care who wins but they are interested in the leftovers. In the end the Eskimo hunter kills the bear. More leftovers for hungry ravens than if the bear had killed the man.
