Description:Cultural Style Haida.Located at the front of the carving studio next to the Royal British Columbia Museum in Victoria B.C. Carvers Gerry Marks, Richard Hunt and Tim Hall.
Artist's Comments: Victoria is home to many totem poles and other First Nations art and it was hard to know what to look at first. The original pole stood in front of a house in Cumshewa, Haida Gwaii, (Queen Charlotte Island) The top figure is a whale below which is a bear with 2 human cubs. These figures may illustrate the Bear Mother story about a woman who marries a bear and gives birth to half-human, half-bear children who become founders of lineages who may claim the Bear as their crest.
