Barry Herem has drawn inspiration from the traditional arts of the Northwest Coast for more than 20 years in his stylization of animal and mythic forms. His work, both public and private, has been created not only in prints but also bronze, wooden sculptures, jewelry fabric and metals. Salmon Song is a beautiful homage to the wild salmon familiar to the West Coast of the US. A shaman sings a song for the annual return of the salmon. The musical notations are the beginning of an actual shaman’s chant as recorded in the literature on the Tlingit peoples of Yakutat , Alaska . The shaman himself and /or the boy associated with many salmon stories from the Northwest Coast, lies just above the lateral fin.
