This hard ground etching is based on an old sketch of a Fin Whale foetus at Grants Museum of Zoology. This research lead to the study Inuit culture, particularly in the Arctic regions where whales are worshipped as well as hunted. That respectful, balanced way of life is brought into stark contrast with the explorers of the Western world, pictured here sailing over the entrails, that staked their claim over both land and living creatures.
