This Argillite Totem Pole was hand-carved in 1984 by Chris Russ from the Haida Nation. The design features an Eagle on top, followed by a Frog, then a Human Mask, and at the base a beaver.
The Eagle Symbol is known as “The master of skies” and is a symbol of great significance. He is believed to be the creature with the closest relationship with the creator. Soaring to great heights, he can travel between the physical and the spiritual world. He is said to be a messenger to the creator.
