The seasons are the forces of nature which trigger the singing of the frogs. To congratulate you on your understanding of the frog legend, Charles Elliott presents you with a print, "Salish Renewal". Add only 1 day.

This print was produced for the naming potlatch of an adopted daughter of Nuu-chah-nulth and Salish parents. The singing of frogs indicates the Salish new year, thus the frogs in the print represent birth and renewal. This image symbolizes the union of two cultures, hence the beginning of a new cycle of future harmony between cultures. The joined mouths of the male and female represent union and creation. The print also represent the revitalization of Salish culture.

Charles Elliott: "This print is an example of how contemporary ideas may be integrated with traditional Salish design elements. Raven, here is an example of how art may change with the times, this is innovation."
