I drive by this totem every once in awhile, yet until I began to photograph it, I had no idea what animals were on it.
The lowest animal on the totem is a wolf..the highest is an eagle just above the owl.
Ha..you would have missed it..I almost did too..but it is there..it is just not real noticeable.
This guy is third from the top, I take it that it is a man or is it a monkey?
The carver had a sense of humor..
He or she also successfully merged four creatures in this section of the totem..Deer, fish, bird and cat.
I know there is much to be said about totems..my take is that they are artwork..just in a different form. Sometimes art work is in the form of words..sometimes they compliment each other.
