The Definition of metamorphosis is a change of physical form
or structure by supernatural means. This piece captures that
concept on two levels. In artistic form, the fish evolve from
log to lumber and roughed out fish, to detailed and painted salmon.
In the natural sense, the sculpture depicts the salmon's amazing
change from the silver ocean phase called "bright", to the red color
of the spawn phase. This colorful change happens as they
reenter fresh water, thus earning them the nickname of "Reds".
