Totem poles


Traditional totem poles are connected to the spirit life. Not so with these examples. The first three were made by Boy Scouts before WWII and the fourth one is an old tourist item from British Columbia. Nonetheless, they are all distinctive, which is good enough for me.

  1. I love these totems. I have a few like them. I think mine are boy
    scout projects. But I have a thing for totem poles and like the
    variety of yours.

  2. I especially like the Scout totems because they break the mold. The kids were just trying to have fun and were little concerned with tradition.
