AKA: belugas dancing for woman-at-the-bottom-of-the-sea

The legend tells of a great bird that stole a young woman away and married her. She was very unhappy and her father came to rescue her. But the great bird made a terrible storm and her father was so terrified he threw her overboard. She clung to the edge of the boat and he cut off her fingers. She sank to the bottom of the sea and her fingers became the sea creatures. The little fish comb her hair because she has no fingers and all the sea creatures look after her.

Included in the book Dale DeArmond – A First Book Collection of Her Prints.
