Hi Rob. Thank you very much for your note! Yes, each animal represents something.
I guess they all tell stories Cathy - very interesting. Thanks.
Thank you Kathy! Wow! What a great project!! If I were you I would contact the Museum of Anthropology at UBC. http://www.moa.ubc.ca They might be able to answer your question or put you in touch with someone who can. If you decide to start this project please take before, during and after pictures!!
I have two large cedar poles that were given to me that I was going to carve now that I am retired but was out looking at them the other day and they have age cracks so now I need to find out if I can fix the cracks or not before I do anything with them. Enjoy your posts, thanks.
Thank you Lorna! You are very welcome!!Thank you Ank. Their ages are different but all these totem poles are real. They were hand carved by First Nations artists. A fake totem pole is one made of plastic in a factory.
Beautiful Cathy, such a lot of poles. Yesterday my comment at the pole disappeared!!! )Did someone steal it? lol)Now I remember my question, is it old or fake. Yesterday was old I read, So these are fake?I love the photo.
A lovely sight. Thanks for a great set Cathy.
Thank you Denise! I'm glad you like the picture!!
Hi Jim. Sometimes if an old totem pole is found neglected and decaying in a remote area it is brought to the Museum of Anthropology at UBC. It is carefully restored by First Nations artists and then displayed at the museum or here in Stanley Park. I think the totem pole I posted yesterday is one of these.
wow what beautiful totems,Thanks cevas:-)
Pretty picture, Cathy! The totem pole you posted yesterday wasn't painted. Do you know why?
