Inspired by an old Norwegian folk tale of the same name which tells the story of a peasant girl who marries a prince who has been turned into a white polar bear and lives in a castle east of the sun and west of the moon.

Kerry says of this piece "the tale appealed to me because the picture I had in my mind reminded me also of Lyra Silvertongue and Lorek Byrnison, characters from the epic trilogy by Philip Pullman - 'His Dark Materials'.

In this piece, the girl has just left home for the first time and has her first taste of freedom. She is looking up in awe of nature's display in the skies, the Northern Lights. As her senses open and she relishes the cold, fresh wilderness, part of her remembers who she really is"
