Surfacing is a Limited Edition Artist Proof signed, dated, and numbered in original, by April White. "The killer whales surface to breathe, exposing their dorsal fins. In this surrealistic representation, the fins are totem pole figures of two hunters. Sghana, Haida for killer whale, is the crest of the Raven clan. According to Haida legend the Raven clan was descended from Foam Woman." - April White

For the Haida, Sgaana xaaydagaay, the killer whale people, are among the most powerful of the people from the sea. Stories tell of Haida ancestors putting on skins of killer whales to enter the realm of the spirit world, where killer whale people and humans visit, communicate and feast together.
