This piece captures the moment a Great White Egret attempts to snatch a crayfish from the depths of a river.  I developed a composition that plunges downward, leading the viewer’s eye to the crayfish.  All the abstract water textures are designed to disorient the viewer and amplify the struggle.


Lyell Castonguay designed, carved, and printed this original artwork. Ink is applied to a carved wooden block and hand-pressed onto Japanese Masa paper. The artist signed, titled, and numbered the edition in pencil below the image.
