Orca Ontology T-Shirt
Channel a sense of equilibrium with this “Orca Ontology” tee by Tseycum artist Sarah Jim. Sarah was the winner of the MOA Shop’s 5th annual Emerging Indigenous Artist Contest in 2018.
“The circular formation of these killer whales depicts the delicate balance of life. The duality of the whales symbolizes the even distribution of the Salish Sea between animals and people. Equality between these elements will result in a balanced world. The killer whale and the Coast Salish people have both been navigating and sharing this body of saltwater for a very long time.”
