Hand pulled by the Artist at Sitka, Alaska, on an Ettan etching press 8.10.97.

Editor's note: the two embossed ravens are difficult to display; they appear above the hunter. Its certificate of authenticity (COA) lists a regular edition of twenty-five, but the print is clearly numbered on several examples as having a regular edition of fifteen. On one artist proof, the ravens are engraved and not embossed.

A fight to the death between an Eskimo hunter and a polar bear. The two ravens overhead are keeping an eye on things. They don't care who wins but they are interested in the leftovers.

In the end the Eskimo hunter kills the bear. More leftovers for hungry ravens than if the bear had killed the man.
