Hand pulled by the artist from the original endgrain maple block on an Ettan etching press at Juneau, Alaska, January, 1989.

Note: this image is featured in the book The First Man; also pictured is the original woodblock. At least one study of this title has surfaced; it is similar in style and theme but differs in minute ways from the final print version.

Illustration for an Eskimo folktale about Young Woman who made a little figure out of spruce gum and stuck a raven’s beak on it. When she woke in the morning the little figure had turned into First Man.

Original price: $35.00
