Native American Animal Mythical Creature Redwood Totem Pole


Almost 17 foot tall redwood animal totem. Animal totems are believed to have spiritual significance. Watching over Pacific Northwest Indian tribes and families. Symbolizing guardian spirits or helpers. Not worshiped, but inspired immense respect. This totem features a bear on the bottom most important position and an eagle or thunderbird at the top position. Carved from redwood with a painted surface showing alligatored paint and age as expected for a wood object that has been exposed to the elements. Please note this is very heavy and requires four strong people to move.
