This unit is fronted by images of spring: the female water spirit, the creatively charged hummingbird, blooming trillium, and the life-giving sun. This composition is flanked by images of air and water on both sides of the unit. The plentiful nourishing salmon and hunter/protector killer whale are centred by the intuitive moon. The beautiful butterflies and intelligent, proud eagle are shone upon by the logical guiding sun.

Designed for a private client, this work was intended to provide visual weight and grounding in a space which is otherwise lofty and open with very high ceilings.
