Orca


Orca is one of my Tlingit spirit characters for my thesis.  He is a shamanistic spirit that is always changing in color and symbolism as the story progresses.  He has 3 forms: wooden totem pole carving, smoke-like wind, and whale form.  In this case, he has abstract symbolism of the other 4 Tlingit spirits of the story: Eagle, Wolf, Bear, and Beaver.  The colors are adapted from the Lynn Canal where the story takes place.  I'll post those other characters soon...
