Material: Paper

Dimensions: 7.25 x 4.75 inches (184.15 x 120.65mm)

Design:The ermine species found on Haida Gwaii is endemic and has been isolated for the last 300.000 years. It is a subspecies under the name Mustela Erminea Haidarum.
It loses its summer colours every year to better camouflage itself in the snow. The ermine is a beautiful and transformative being.
