The First Totem Pole
After getting started I was able to see more clearly what the wood was capable of. Also, the design was changing slowly to fit the area available.
The process took about 5 months from beginning to end.
It happened quickly. As it always does in hindsight.
I looked to the Tlingit and Haida of the Northwest Coast for inspiration for this 12' tall pole.
