Totems: It’s a Symbol of …..???
I’ve decided to use the Chrissy break to make some things that I want to make – just for me!!! Like a totem for the garden in front of my studio! So, I’ve done some homework on what others have been doing. Here are some of the totems that I liked and that will inspire me to make mine. I’ll let you see my totem as it gets built.
Historically,the original totemic art originated in the Pacific Coast northwest from Alaska and British Columbia. Native Indians carved wooden totems, imbued them with a spiritual symbolism and have been protected by the dwindling tribes who live on the coast.
Today’s totems can be highly symbolic or just for fun! Mine is going to be JUST FOR FUN!!
