Yet just as cryptic and mesmerizing as it must have been during the days of Buffalo Bill and the Wild West.
Well, it’s currently standing in the middle of a country park in Yorkshire, England. How it came to be there……
I would love to know!
Like an unopened Christmas gift – is it better to have the mystery or another pair of oven gloves?
Your personal totem in your garden to keep out all evil? 😉
🙂 – unfortunately not. However, I am well protected by a Rowan tree (Mountain Ash) that grows in the garden. 😉
And yet there it is – I’m willing to bet it has a fascinating history, but like you think the mystery of it is just as alluring.
Everyone who sees it can put their own story to it – I wonder how may variants there would be – probably just a few basic ideas embellished in countless ways.
Wow, that is an amazing totem pole. I wonder how it got there?
Well, there we go, I wouldn’t have bothered following it up if I hadn’t seen your post and your subsequent interest – it was only a photographic target at the time.
Seems it was created by a guy called Tim Paul – a native American Hesquiat, descended from the Nuu-cha-nulth territory of Vancouver.
Apparently it took him ten weeks, using traditional tools and colours.
Thanks for looking into that, I’ll have to research Tim Paul.
🙂 to my benefit too – the next time I visit I’ll drop his name at the appropriate point and impress everyone in earshot with my intimate knowledge. 😉
