This sculpture is meant to evoke the high respect that Alaskan Natives have for their brother, the Killer Whale (Orcinus orca), also known as “Keet” by the Tlingit tribe of Southeastern Alaska. Many stories and legends about the great Killer Whale have been passed down from one generation to the next, honoring his strength, grace and beauty.

In the matriarchal society of the Tlingits, the Killer Whale is the icon of one of the family clans within the Eagle clan. This sculpture shows traditional totemic symbols along his powerful black body. He rises on the fluid curve of a wave originating in a bas-relief representation of the State of Alaska.

The whale's belly and the face of the wave are polished bronze to represent the uplands, while the back of the wave is blue to represent the ocean.
