Pacific Northwest Carved Totem Pole

About

Totem poles were employed by native tribes in the Northern Alaska and Canadian areas to tell stories of local animals, families, and history. There are literally no two that are alike, as each was hand carved and decorated. Ours is topped by an owl, under which is a man, a reptile, a bear, an eagle, a rabbit, and finally another owl on the bottom. The carvings and paintings are very impressive, and exhibit a fading consistent with age. We don't have history on this particular pole, but it was most likely a high end tribal tourist item from the 1950's. It is all carved from one log.
