Carved wooden totem pole with three creatures, a bear, a raven (?) with the sun or moon in its beak, and a humanoid with face painting. The pole is painted with red, green, blue and black , with the reverse and base being totally painted green. The pole is very similar in style to 22.1067 suggesting they are same carver' s work.; Good


The style of this pole leads me to suggest it could be Tsimshian, however without provenance it is hard to accurately assert an identity (G.Crowther). The original European tribal names and, where possible, current tribal names have both been given in separate GLT fields.; The pole is typical of the tourist art carved in 1920' s 30' s, indeed it bears the price of $3.00, possibly added by the carver at time of manufacture, and later reduced to $2.00 (G.Crowther).
