The mythology and art of the Indians of the Northwest Coast is full of references to the killer whale. The Kwakiutl believe that the killer whale lived in a great house four days’ journey away. His warriors were dolphins, and sea-lions were his messengers and slaves. Characteristics of Roy’s portrayal of the killer whale are the human face in the blow-hole and mask as tail. His multi-finned form is a legendary whale.
