In Ulsan, Korea, there are rare paintings of whales engraved on a rock by prehistoric men thousands of years ago. One of these outstanding engravings portrays a mother whale and her baby. Experts on Cetaceans conjecture that they could be Korean gray whales. Even prehistoric men must have been attracted by the strong maternal love of the female gray whales.

Across the centuries from the prehistoric past, this collection of whale poems, sponsored by the Ulsan Writers Assembly and Ulasan Metropolitan City, is akin to the engravings of our prehistoric forefathers who delicately inscribed their caring motherly love on an ancient rock. Like the prehistoric engravings in Ulsan, this book of whale poems will engrave the Korean people s ever-lasting love for whales on the heart of all people in this world.
