Totem Pole, I really like the round circles for the eyes being carved out to make the eyes stand out and a 3 dimensional effect. I also like the triangle form of nose on one of the totem poles to help create different faces for the totem pole making each face unique with different details.

"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
