Mama and her three young raccoon cubs are gathered in a tree trunk staring fixedly at the graceful Luna moth fluttering nearby. The green leaves surrounding them give the impression of early spring as the raccoons make their way into the world.

John A. Ruthven, world renowned wildlife artist, created this offset lithograph exclusively for the CET Ruthven Collector Society. Only 500 prints of Plate II of the Cherished Young Series were ever produced. The 14 by 17-inch unframed print is double signed by the artist and numbered. Watch for Plates III and IV of the Cherished Young Series; Plate I is no longer available. The print must be picked up at CET or ThinkTV, as shipping is not available.

Donor value is $300.
