Totem Poles

While visiting the Museum of Civilization this afternoon, I was drawn to their totem pole display in the First Peoples Exhibit. The Grand Hall holds about twelve wooden monuments, which feature various animals and faces, carved into cedar. I love the contrast of the deeply cut lines against the weathered wood.
