"This amazing totem was on somebody’s front yard in Ketchikan, Alaska, right behind their parking spot. It’s beautiful, I love the character this bird has. I like the fact they are living art – carved wood standing out in the open, changing constantly due to weathering. They never were made to be hidden away in museums, presided over by people in white coats – they are for the people, and of the people." Matthew Wild
