"The Chief Maker and the Frog" 24x36"
Carved by Calvin Hunt of Port Hardy
This totem is located in Duncan BC. Another inspiration from my trip to Vancouver Island last September.
This totem is carved in the traditional Kwakwaka'wakw style and the back is more Coast Salish.
The Chief Maker is at the bottom of the pole, this is what has been painted, this is to honor the women of the community.
The pole is about honoring the five original tribes, having a representative at the dedication, in the ceremony which is represented by five salmon on the pole, (not depicted on my painting) Everything was about blessing the day with the chosen dances and songs.
The original and prints are available of this image. Please contact me for further details.
