Large quileute or makah totem pole

Item Number: T501


This large model pole features a singing human, probably a chief, in a woven-style hat over a sea monster of some sort. The style of the human face on this incredible pole points to an origin on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington, perhaps from the Quileute, Makah, or even the Quinault. The distinctive heavy brow and broad, straight nose are distinctive enough that the maker of this pole could likely be identified with some research. The speckling pattern of paint resembles other works, likely by this same artist, that have been identified as Quileute. The pursed lips on the human are an interesting touch and probably indicate that the figure is depicted singing. A highly unusual piece. 26"

PERIOD: Late 19th Century
