This seahorse design is Phil Joe's first limited edition print. Even though seahorses are not commonly represented in Coast Salish art, some artists have depicted them in the form of carvings or paintings.

Phil's motivation for this print was his four year old daughter, whose favourite creature is the seahorse. She wanted one done in the Coast Salish style and he was happy to oblige.

Seahorses are small fish named for their horse like appearance, with a long and snouted head, curved neck, and distinctive trunk and tail. They are masters of camouflage as they can change colours to blend in with their environment. Each can display many variations of colour and pattern.

This limited edition silk screen print titled "Seahorse" by Phil Joe was hand produced by the screen printing process. It is the only limited edition printing of this design. The artist has inspected and signed each copy in the edition. All trial copies of this edition have been destroyed and the printing stencils obliterated.
