This charming Mother Bear Pole has been carved in argillite by an unknown Haida carver, probably from the early 20th century. The pole is not signed, just like most pieces from that era. The pole is composed of three main figures with a bear cub at the top of the pole, a larger bear beneath, and another bear at the bottom. This small pole stands a little over four inches or 10 cm tall, nearly one inch or 2.5 cm wide, and about one inch or 2.5 cm deep. This pole is in very good condition.
