Native Canadian totem statue, collected by Una, Mira & Sasha in Victoria, Canada. 2001 Part of my travel collection of small figurines I call “Little Gods”.
“The poles serve a purpose: that of telling stories and relaying histories. Some feature family crests and ancestries; others carve out a legend. Traditionally, the cedar poles would be open to the elements and slowly return to the earth over time.” (Quote Source)
